Grilled Kiwi Chicken

Kiwi Chicken with Kale Chips and Crowder Peas
My husband is the one who actually prepared this super flavorful Kiwi Chicken.  I was not feeling well this past weekend so he decided to make dinner. I gave him the original recipe from the March issue of the Rachael Ray magazine EveryDay as a guide.  

Of course he did not stick to the recipe, but we never do.  Here is my husband's version of Kiwi Chicken.

Grilled Kiwi Chicken

4-6 Chicken thighs
salt and pepper
1 Clove of garlic, minced
3 Kiwis
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tsp olive oil
1/2-1 Tsp jalapeno, chopped (more if you like it spicy)

Salt and pepper each side of the chicken and grill chicken until done.

While chicken is cooking, saute garlic in olive oil over medium heat.  

Peel kiwis and press through a fine-mesh sieve (we used a fruit strainer) to extract all the juice.  

Place remaining kiwi flesh into a mini chopper and puree.  Add kiwi juice, garlic oil, honey and jalapeno, puree to combine.

Serve sauce over chicken and add chopped kiwi if you like.  This sauce was amazing!
