  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • The salsa can be made up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerated. Making it ahead will actually allow the flavors to blend.
  • 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.
  • Serve this fruity chicken dish with steamed broccoli, sliced garden-fresh tomatoes and seasoned rice.
