Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Baste with hard apple cider glaze during the last 5 minutes of grilling, being careful not to burn the glaze. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170 degrees F. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
