  • 1 pkg. (2 1/2 lb.) Tyson® Individually Fresh Frozen® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 container (12-oz.) frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed (about 3/4 c.)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3 large Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into thick rings


Preheat grill to medium (if using gas grill), or until charcoal is covered with gray ash and is medium-hot. Wash hands.

In a small saucepan, combine apple juice concentrate, honey, lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Heat over medium heat until sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Set aside 1 cup of mixture to serve as sauce; use remaining for basting. Arrange apple rings on grill and brush with basting sauce. Grill for 8 minutes, basting often. Turn apple rings over, baste again and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, basting often. Remove from grill; keep warm.

Place frozen chicken on grill. Brush with basting sauce. Grill for 10 minutes, basting often. Turn chicken over and baste again. Basting often, grill for 10 to 15 minutes more or until internal juices run clear. (Or insert instant-read meat thermometer in thickest part of chicken. Temperature should read 170F.) Discard leftover basting sauce.

Serve chicken and apples with reserved sauce. Refrigerate leftovers immediately.
