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 1cupchopped peeled fresh peaches (could sub frozen) 1/2cupketchup 2tablespoonsfresh lemon juice 2garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2teaspoonsadobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 4skinless, 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.
Memorial Day is all about grilling right? So we spent the weekend using our grill as much as we could! Brats, hot dogs, chicken, ribs, potatoes – pretty much every meal! It was great to get out of the “kitchen” and be outside!
Ribs have to be one our favorites, and have been for awhile. But they are a special treat – we probably only make them once or twice a year. Our son used to love them. When he was 2 and thought they were the best. But for the last couple years he wouldn’t touch them. With his new found love of pork chops, I figured I could get these past him. I started by just cutting some meat off the bone and let him eat it like that – fail. Then I turned him on to the novelty of getting dirty and being able to eat it straight from the bone – success! Should have known, 6 year old boy = messy! He must have eaten a whole 1/2 rack of ribs that way. Proud moment for Daddy!
We have been making this recipe for years. I got it off one of those imitation of a restaurant sites. It is supposed to be how Tony Roma’s does their Blue Ridge Smokey Ribs.
