Chicken and Peaches

This may be the simplest main dish ever made.  Seriously - 6 ingredients and you have the most lovely dish.  I love to cook with peaches when they are in season and currently they are in season!  YUMMMM

Chicken and Peaches Served with Roasted Potatoes
Serves 2

  • 2 chicken breast halves with the bone (more flavour and less chance of drying out on the BBQ!)
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp bbq sauce + extra to baste the chicken, I use one for chicken and ribs but you could use your favorite.

  1. Preheat BBQ to high
  2. Preheat a sauce pan to medium high and spray with cooking spray
  3. BBQ the chicken on the BBQ for 30 -35 minutes, depending on how thick the breasts are.  (you can also roast some nice potato wedges at the same time!)
  4. In the sauce pan toss the onions and cook until browned
  5. Reduce the heat on the pan to medium and add the peaches
  6. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes
  7. Add the soya sauce and bbq sasuce and simmer on low for another 10 minutes
  8. Add water by the tablespoon if the sauce is too thick for your liking
  9. Baste the chicken with the extra bbq sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking time
  10. Serve the peach mixture over the chicken.  And the potatoes if you roasted some.
With the soy sauce and bbq sauce there is plenty of salt in this dish so don't add any unless you really need it at the table.
