Grilled Chicken over Rice and Mixed Fruit

I first had made this when I lived in South Florida many years ago. It combines the sweetness of the fruit along with the spice of the horseradish sauce. Grill this and wow everything comes together in a taste bud feast. This really is a Shabbat recipe. This takes a little time to put together but isn’t your family worth the trouble? Shabbat Shalom, you will love this and yes they are really worth the extra effort.

Grilled Chicken over Rice and Mixed Fruit


1 4 lb. Kosher Chicken cut into 8 pieces
2 tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Red Onions, diced
½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
½ cup Ketchup
½ cup Brown Sugar
2 (9 oz.) Bottles prepared Kosher White Horseradish
Juice of 3 Lemons
Juice of 1 Orange
2 Red Bell Peppers, diced
2 Green Bell Peppers, diced
1 inch long Fresh Ginger, minced
1 cup Pineapple Juice
Zest of one Lemon, minced
Zest of one Orange, minced
1 14 oz. can of Pineapple Chunks
2 Oranges, sliced without the skin
2 Apples, sliced
1 Melon, seeded and the meat of the melon balled
1 cup Other fresh fruit of the Season
½ tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. Hot Pepper Sauce (optional)
Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste


In a large skillet, add the oil, and sauté the onions until they are translucent. Add the vinegar, ketchup, horseradish sauce, sugar, fruit juices, peppers, ginger, Worcestershire Sauce and some Hot Sauce. Bring this to a boil slowly, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes until it begins to thicken. Use as a basting sauce on chicken. Save the rest for later.

Grill the chicken over an open flame for 10 minutes per side until done. Plate all the fruit on a large platter, pour the remaining sauce and vegetables over the fruit and place the grilled chicken on top.

Serve with a fresh salad, some rice or pasta, vegetable, some fish, Israel Kosher Wine, Challah and of course light two candles. Scrub the kids until they shine, put on your best dress, say a few prayers and set for Shabbat. Shomer the Sabbath it a very special day for you so keep it Holy. Shabbat Shalom
