Ingredients

  • 8 boneless chicken thighs, pounded thin (about 2 pounds)

  • 2 cups red or green seedless grapes (or a combination of the two), cut in half
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (1 teaspoon lime zest, optional)
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Directions

  • Prepare the grill. Chicken may be cooked on an oiled grilling pan. (The pan should be very hot before placing the chicken on it.)
  • Brush both sides of each thigh with some honey mustard and set them aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the ingredients for the salsa and set it aside.
  • Grill or sauté the chicken until just firm. Serve the chicken immediately with some of the salsa spooned alongside.
