Easy Barbecue Chicken Recipe for July 4th Recipe

I have been grilling a lot of poultry lately on the wonderful barbecue grill we purchased this past Memorial Day weekend. I’ve made tandoori chicken and soy sauce quail and they both turned out lovely. I thought it was time to experiment a bit and create a new recipe for the upcoming July 4th weekend. I had a jar of delicious chokecherry jelly that Daddy's friends from Minnesota gave us, and I decided to make a marinade and glaze out of it. The jelly imparts a tangy sweet flavor to the chicken that is perfect for a hot summer day.

If you're having a barbecue this July 4th weekend, give this grilled chicken recipe a try. It's to die for! For more grilling recipes, check out Mark Bittman's latest post, 101 Fast Recipes for Grilling.

Chicken Skewers Glazed with Kiwi Chutney Recipe

Kiwi chutney helps bring chicken to life by infusing the meat with sweet, tangy and spicy flavors. It's an exotic and flavorful twist on what could otherwise be a boring chicken dinner. I served the skewers with raita (yogurt sauce) and some more of the sauce made from the kiwi chutney. For the vegetarians in the house, I deep-fried tofu cubes, placed them on skewers and brushed them with kiwi chutney. Everyone got to share almost the "same" meal, which is very rare in my home.

I got the jar of kiwi chutney pictured below from our friend Laura. It's just one product in a long line of lovely creations that she has shared with us. Laura makes an amazing French marmalade, flavored with French vanilla beans. I don't have the recipe for the marmalade, but last year, she was kind enough to share her recipe for making vinegar on Pham Fatale.

If you don't have a friend like Laura, or can't find kiwi chutney at your local market, you can always try using other sweet chutneys such as mango or tamarind. No matter what, you'll have a tasty new chicken dish to share with your family and friends.
