Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Relish

 Since we have a very plentiful supply of rhubarb & wanting to use it as often as possible I went on a search for new & interesting recipes to use it in. Found this one & was excited to try it, so Daren & I had a date night at home Friday & cooked dinner together.
  Our menu for the evening was Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Relish, Grilled Asparagus, Sweet Potato Fries & fresh garden salad.
  Daren mastered the grill while I made the fries, salad & the relish for the chicken.

Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Relish

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

Sprinkle chicken with salt & pepper. Brush with lemon juice & oil. Grill until done approx. 6 minutes per side.

3 cups rhubarb, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 cup orange juice
1-2 jalapenos, seeded & chopped
2 shallots, minced

Bring all of the relish ingredients to a boil; reduce heat & simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook about 10 minutes until it is thick. Cool. Serve over top of the grilled chicken

 The final verdict; Daren was not really that impressed, but I thought is was quite I don't know how often I'll be making it but it was fun to try using rhubarb in something other than dessert recipes. And we had a great evening at home together! =)
 Blessings on your day!

  1. This looks good. Daren responded just like Josh would have. Trying new, exotic recipes with him is like pulling hen's teeth, kind of like taking him to Panera Bread:) Keep it up!
