Agave-Lime Grilled Chicken With Fresh Cherry Salsa

1 12 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast halves
14 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
14 cup agave nectar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
12 teaspoon salt
12 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
14 teaspoon onion powder
14 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove finely minced garlic
cayenne pepper, to taste
1 cup pitted cherries, quartered
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onions
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
juice of one lime


To Make The Marinade: Place chicken in a ziplock bag. In a bowl whisk together marinade ingredients. Pour mixture over the chicken and reseal, squeezing out excessive air. Allow to marinate at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. To Make The Cherry Salsa: Mix ingredients and set aside. Serve over or along side the chicken. To Finish: Preheat grill to medium high heat. Once preheated, brush grill lightly with olive oil. Place chicken (if desired lightly season) on grill and cook (with lid closed) 5-8 minutes per side until juices run clear (depending on thickness).
