  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups fresh mixed summer fruit—plums, nectarines, peaches, etc.
  • juice from 1⁄2 orange
  • juice from 1 lime
  • salt and pepper
  • CHICKEN
  • 1 whole chicken, cut up
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro

Instructions

1

Begin by making the chutney.

2

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the onions and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion browns, 4-5 minutes.

3

Add the ginger and garlic and sauté till fragrant, about 1 more minute. Lower heat to medium and add the remaining ingredients. Cook until the fruit starts to soften but not fall apart, about 5 minutes longer.

4

Taste and adjust seasoning. Can be set aside at room temperature for several hours before serving.

5

Time for the chicken.

6

Place the olive oil, garlic and chile in a small saucepan over low heat. When the garlic just starts to sizzle, remove the pan from the heat.

7

Mix with the lime juice in a large, shallow nonreactive pan and set aside to cool. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

8

Grill the chicken over a medium hot fire until the chicken is almost done.

9

Add the cilantro to the sauce and place the chicken parts in the sauce, rolling them around to coat.

10

Return the parts to a cool-medium grill and cook 5 minutes longer or until done.

11

Serve warm or at room temperature.
