Grilled Peach & Chicken Salad

There is still time to break out that BBQ and grill this season.  And hopefully you can still find some garden fresh ripe peaches to add to this simple salad.

This recipe came about because my 10 year old was obsessed with grilling peaches.  He would not rest while peaches remained in the house and he had not gotten to taste their "luscious goodness" hot off the grill.  So, I figured what can go with grilled peaches?  Chinese BBQ chicken of course.  Place them both on a bed of greens, toss in some cucumbers from a neighbor's garden.  Voila, Grilled Peach and Chicken Salad was born.

Grilled Peach & Chicken Salad
3 ripe peaches, halved
2 chicken breasts
1 cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup Chinese Barbeque Sauce
4 cups mixed greens for salad

Heat grill to medium.  Place peaches cut side down on the grill.  Cook 6 minutes.  Flip and cook until seared.  Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, cook chicken on the grill for 12-15 minutes turning once or until the internal temperature reaches 165.  Turn heat to high.  Brush Chinese Barbeque Sauce on the chicken.  Cook one minute more on each side, brushing more barbeque sauce on with each turn.

Slice chicken and peaches into bite sized pieces.  Toss chicken and peaches with the lettuce and cucumbers.  Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of Chinese Barbeque Sauce over the top as a dressing.

Happy Eating!
