A brush of peach preserves pumps up the flavor of grilled chicken breasts. The fruit and veggie salsa is a delicious bonus.
Updated Oct 8, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup peach preserves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves or 1 teaspoon dried mint flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1 peach or nectarine, peeled, chopped (3/4 cup)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix cucumber, 2 tablespoons of the preserves, the mint, salt, onion and peach; set aside.
  • 2
    Carefully spray grill rack with cooking spray. Place chicken on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing 2 or 3 times with remaining peach preserves, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Discard any remaining preserves. Serve chicken with salsa.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The salsa can be made up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerated. Making it ahead will actually allow the flavors to blend.
  • tip 2
    If you're using a charcoal grill, plan on about 40 minutes to prep the grill and heat charcoal to the correct temperature. Gas and electric grills will take about 10 minutes.
  • tip 3
    Serve this fruity chicken dish with steamed broccoli, sliced garden-fresh tomatoes and seasoned rice.
