I've had some readers ask what the topping is on my grilled boneless chicken and vegetables dish here which is so easy to make and tastes absolutely fabulous.
When I grilled these chicken breasts, I used Garlic Gold olive oil to prevent sticking and to give a hint of extra flavor. Then, I put them on the City Grill which is a tailgate grill - so small but with a large cooking surface. It's my go-to grill for gas grilling, especially on the road.
As for the orange colored sauce on top, that is Diane's Sweet Heat jam. I have the Peach Habanero on my chicken in this shot. It may sound like an odd ingredient to put on my grilled chicken, but I love heat. Diane's jam really rocked my grilled chicken dinner.
If you have never had habanero pepper jam, then it is basically like a fruit jam, but it is hot (though not the bitter hot that I do not like). The fruit (peach in this case) gives the spicy jam a beautiful sweet contrast. So, it's kind of like candy with a bite and this peach heat was terrific on my chicken.
I was telling my brother about Diane's Sweet Heat, and he's more the gourmet type. He thought it sounded great too. I will try to save some for when he gets in. And, I can't wait to try some of the other varieties too.
Diane did send me the samples. We are both on Twitter. I noticed a broken link on a post she put up, so I just sent her a message. She wanted to send me some jams for taking the time to let her know. I wasn't sure how these would work with grilled foods, but they are terrific to add on top to get extra flavor. So, I just wanted to share my new find.
