Apple Thyme Chicken

1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
4 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 boneless skinless Harvest Haven chicken breasts, cut in half
2 medium Harvest Haven apples, peeled and quartered
1 tablespoon Harvest Haven honey
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup apple juice

For marinade, in a bowl, mix first five ingredients. In another bowl, combine chicken and 3/4 cup marinade; refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours. Reserve remaining marinade; cover and refrigerate.

Toss apples in reserved marinade; remove apples with a slotted spoon. Stir honey into remaining apple marinade. Place apples on an oiled grill rack over medium heat; grill, uncovered, until tender, 4-6 minutes, turning and brushing frequently with honey mixture.

Drain chicken, discarding chicken marinade. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Grill, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer reads 165°, 5-7 minutes per side; brush frequently with remaining honey mixture during the last 4 minutes.
In a saucepan, mix sauce ingredients until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes; stir in apples. Serve with chicken.
