This recipe is great for grilled chicken, shrimp or pork. A simple mixture of green or red Hatch chile, apricot jam, garlic, lime juice and seasonings. Mix it once, separate, and use as both a marinade and a glaze while on the grill.
1/2 cup roasted, chopped red or green Hatch chile
1/2 cup apricot jam (or honey)
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1- 1 1/2 pounds chicken, shrimp, or pork chops
Optional freshly chopped cilantro and lime wedges
Place chile, jam, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper, and vegetable oil in a blender and blend until mostly smooth. (A little chunky is ok.)
Pour approximately ¾ of the marinade into a zipper lock bag or container and reserve the rest for glaze. Place chicken, shrimp or pork into marinade and stir to coat. Refrigerate for 1 to 5 hours.
Preheat your grill to medium high heat and brush it clean. While the grill is preheating, pour the remaining portion of marinade that was set aside into a small saucepan and bring to a boil for approximately 2-5 minute or until thickened.
Remove the meat from the refrigerated marinade and place directly on the grill. Cook as desired and remove. Brush meat with thickened glaze and serve.
