2/3 cup Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink OR Light Ruby Grapefruit Juice Drink

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons honey

1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 


Combine grapefruit juice drink, butter, brown sugar, honey and red pepper flakes in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until smooth, 4-6 minutes. Set aside to cool 10 minutes. 

Arrange chicken breasts in a 11x7x1-1/2-inch baking pan. Pour 2/3 cup marinade over chicken just to cover, reserving 1/2 cup. Cover pan with plastic wrap. Refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes. Remove and turn chicken over, allow to marinate another 30 minutes. 

Divide remaining 1/2 cup marinade in half again; 1/4 cup will be used for basting and 1/4 cup will be used for serving. 

Preheat grill. Grill chicken for approximately 4 minutes on each side; basting once or twice per side. Cook until chicken reaches 170° F on an instant-read thermometer. 

Warm remaining 1/4 cup marinade, drizzle over chicken.
