Chicken Breast With A Citrus And Rum Glaze

Aņejo rum is aged rum. Use caution when igniting the rum; remove the pan from the heat before doing so. Have a pot lid close by; if necessary, cover the pot to smother the flames.

Type: Chicken, Poultry
Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 cups 474mlAñejo rum
2 tablespoons 30mlMinced shallot
1/4 cup 59mlGrapefruit juice
1/4 cup 59mlLemon juice
  Zest of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon 5mlDried thyme
1/4 cup 59mlMolasses
1   Cinnamon stick - (3" long)
3   Star anise
14   Peppercorns
1/3 cup 78mlOlive oil
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlKosher salt
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlFreshly-ground black pepper
  Zest of 2 large oranges
4   Free-range bone-in skin-on
  Chicken breasts

Recipe Instructions

Glaze: Place the rum and shallot in a skillet and warm over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Carefully (with a safety lighter) ignite the rum to burn off the alcohol. It will take about 6 to 8 minutes for the flames to die down. The rum will be reduced to about 1 cup.

Add the grapefruit juice, lemon juice, lemon zest, thyme, molasses, cinnamon stick, star anise and peppercorns, and heat over medium heat to reduce slightly. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain; discard the solids. Keep warm until ready to use.

Chicken: Combine the oil, salt, pepper and zest. Thoroughly rub the mixture on the chicken breasts just before grilling.

Grill over a medium flame. When the chicken is just cooked through, baste generously with the rum sauce. Drizzle the plates with the remainder of the sauce and serve.
