Honey Barbecued Chicken with Red Pepper Slaw

This recipe serves:  4
For the chicken:
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1/3 cup honey
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 4 to 6 ounces each
For the slaw:
2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into very thin strips
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into very thin strips
1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
1 cup finely shredded cabbage,
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Instructions
1. In a blender or food processor, puree the onion, ketchup, 1/2 cup of the vinegar, Worcestershire, Dijon, hot sauce and honey together.

2. Place half of the sauce in a shallow bowl, add the chicken breasts and marinate for 1 hour or overnight in the refrigerator. Reserve the remaining sauce separately.

3. To make the slaw, combine the red and green peppers, red onion, cabbage and dill in a medium bowl.

4. In a small saucepan, combine the chicken broth, 1/4 cup of the vinegar, oil, sugar and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, pour it over the vegetable mixture and season with black pepper. Set the slaw aside for at least 1/2 hour or overnight in the refrigerator.

5. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

6. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the hot grill. (Discard the marinade.) Grill the chicken on both sides, brushing from time to time with the reserved barbecue sauce, until the chicken is cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.

7. Serve the chicken along with a large spoonful of slaw.

Serving Size: 1 chicken breast with 1/2 cup of slaw
