Squeeze a few chunks of fresh lime or lemon over the finished bird and fruit. Complete the meal with a pan of quick-cooking orzo pasta tossed with some crumbled feta cheese and a bowl full of fresh arugula dressed in a vinaigrette.

Instructions

  1. Lightly oil grill rack; heat grill to medium heat. Mix all glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until well blended; set aside ¼ cup to serve with chicken.

  2. Cut chicken in half with kitchen shears, rinse and pat dry. Rub with reserved 1 tablespoon oil. Place chicken halves on grill, skin-side up. Cook, turning as needed, until juices run clear (40 to 50 minutes or until 180°F in thigh meat). Brush with honey mixture during the last 15 minutes of grilling.

  3. Place fruit, cut-side down, on the grill during the last 6 to 8 minutes of grilling. Turn fruit once and brush with honey mixture.

  4. Drizzle chicken and fruit with reserved 1/4 cup honey glaze and a squeeze of lime.
