1 pound cut-up boneless skinless chicken breast halves for stir fry
2 large firm ripe pears sliced
1 large cooking apple, sliced
1/2 cup roasted apple viniagrette or malt vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place chicken, pears and apple on one side of each of 4 sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, 18 x 12 inches. Top with vinaigrette, sage and salt. Fold other half of foil over chicken and fruit so edges meet. Seal edges, making a tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion. Repeat folding to seal each side.
Cover and grill packets 4 to 5 inches from medium heat 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Place foil packets on plates. To serve, cut a large X across top of packet; fold back foil.
Sage has a pungent, musty flavor that pairs well with apples and chicken.
Roasted-apple marinade is a bottled fat-free dressing and marinade made from fresh apples that have been roasted and mixed with champagne vinegar, sugar and spices. It is deep brown in color with a toasty, savory apple flavor. Look for it along with the salad dressings or marinades in your grocery store.
