Spicy Sweet Chicken
4 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 seedless orange, peeled and chopped
1 small pear, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, shopped
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 cup honey
1 11-ounce can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
Mix first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. Finely chop 1 of the chiles.
In another bowl mix the honey, chopped chile, and 2 1/2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce. (refrigerate remaining chipotle chiles and sauce for another use)
Set aside 1 tablespoon of the honey glaze mixture. Brush half of the remaining glaze over 1 side of each chicken breast half. Place in a broiler pan - glaze side up. Broil about 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. Flip chicken and brush with other half of the glaze. Cook another 6 or 7 minutes until juices run clear. Drizzle the last tablespoon of glaze over chicken. Serve chicken over steamed rice and top with the relish.
