Grilled Chicken with Peach BBQ Sauce





We had a great time this weekend at my family reunion.  There was lots of time in the water, and it was great visiting with family.  We drove part way there on Friday and got to see some friends we never get to see. Our friend Tony is Vietnamese, and makes fabulous Vietnamese food!  He made us traditional Egg Rolls and Pad Thai for dinner.  It was amazing!  He is not a blogger, but I am hoping I can convince him to do a guest post on our dinner that night! 

This chicken is great too.  I must admit I was skeptical when I saw Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover of Bon Appetit, but she really can cook.  This Peach BBQ sauce is wonderful.  I have never put fruit in my BBQ sauce before, but it was great!  Served with summer Sweet Corn and you have a wonderful dinner! 

Grilled Chicken with Peach BBQ Sauce
From Bon Appetit
Printable Recipe
 
1 cup chopped peeled fresh peaches (could sub frozen)
1/2 cup ketchup 
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
1 1/2 teaspoons adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts 
Vegetable oil


Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Season lightly with salt and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer until peaches are very soft and flavors meld, about 10 minutes.

Remove pan from heat; let cool. Pour peach mixture into a blender and purée until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Place half the sauce in a medium bowl; add the chicken and turn to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, or cover and chill for up to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce.

Prepare a grill to medium-high heat.  Grill chicken until browned and almost cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side. Brush on all sides with reserved sauce; grill until glazed and cooked through, 1-2 minutes per side. Slice crosswise. Serve remaining sauce alongside.

Peach barbecue sauce sounds lovely! Very summery and I bet it goes well with the smoky grill flavours!

We are on the same wave length!! I'm so glad you posted this with chicken, I still have a good amount of our Peach BBQ Sauce left and I wasn't sure what to do with it. It went wonderfully with the Pork and if I wait till tomorrow (so we don't have it two days in a row!) I think it will go well over chicken. You answered the question I was wondering (how would it be with chicken?)! Thanks!!

I have made one of Gwyneth's recipes before and she can really cook (or her assistant can)! Great recipe!

This is a Gwyneth recipe? I don't know why I find that surprising, but I do! Looks great, I may have to try this one!

I've never had fruit in my BBQ sauce, either. But I've grilled peaches before, which I love. So I think this is a perfect combo for me! And that corn...looks just beautiful! : )

Mmmm....your chicken sounds delicious! Can't wait to get to Iowa next week to eat some wonderful sweet corn, too~

I think I would be skeptical of a recipe coming from Gwyneth Paltrow too but I'm glad it turned out so well! It looks delicious and I love that touch of sweetness!

That sauce sounds divine but I can't get past that corn! Nothing like that here and it brings back such memories. Lovely meal.

You did it better, I cheated and bought mine. Lol! Looks fab. Such a great combo. I was considering buying Gwyneth's cookbook. She seems to know her stuff.
