Here are a few ideas of dishes to keep warm with Dining Stones!

I love grilling chicken and recently tried this glazed chicken recipe from the magazine, Everyday with Rachael Ray.  I altered the recipe a little because I don’t care for pineapple, although I am trying to “learn to like it.”  I used oranges instead.  Below is Rachael’s recipe:

Glazed Chicken

Glazed Chicken


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 4 pounds)
  • Salt
  • 1 pineapple — peeled, cored and cut into 8 thick rings (I substituted oranges)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until translucent and beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the honey, hot pepper sauce and chili powder and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill or large grill pan to medium-high. Rub the chicken with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt. Grill until well marked, about 7 minutes. Flip and cook until the bottoms are well marked and the chicken is cooked through, another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and brush with the reserved honey glaze. Cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, grill the pineapple until well marked on one side, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve with the chicken.
Best regards,
