Although I often read that you aren't supposed to put sweeter ingredients on the chicken before grilling as it'll cause flare ups I find the no sugar added marmalade does fine but I have a tip for that in the method section.
4 large chicken breasts - local or organic (this'll work with tofu, pork etc.)
1 cup (250 ml) salsa - your choice
1/2 cup (125 ml) orange marmalade, no sugar added
1/4 cup (60 ml) Sriracha to taste - or hot sauce of your choice
1. Put the chicken breasts in a pan. I have four that were quite large and I ended up dividing them in two when almost cooked through.
2. Stir the three marinade ingredients together in a medium bowl.
While the chicken is cooking prepare the salad. I served the chicken with cooked brown rice and a fresh green salad with sorrel, garlic chives and mint out of the spring garden.
