Grilled Chicken with Indian BBQ Sauce and Peach Relish

Standard
So after a week of over indulgence in red meat it is back to my staple meat, CHICKEN!!!  Now don’t let the idea of bland, white, boiled, tasteless white meat rule your thinking of chicken.  I can make even the most mundane of proteins exciting for you!!! Just follow me on my global tour of chicken this week and I will make the most skeptical of you (my husband) see just how exciting and versatile this important healthy protein is!
For the Indian BBQ sauce
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup white wine
1 tbs brown sugar
1tbs chili powder
1tbs coriander
1tbs curry
1tbs cumin
1tbs paprika
1tsp allspice

For the Grilled Chicken
4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
olive oil
salt and pepper
For the Peach Relish
4 Large peaches
1 red pepper
1 jalapeno seeds and veins removed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup orange juice
juice of one lime
1 tbs honey

Slice peaches, dice both peppers and combine in a mixing brown with cilantro, honey, and lime and orange juices.

To make the BBQ sauce combine the vinegar, wine, all the spices and brown sugar in a mixing bowl, cover and chill.
Brush the chicken with olive oil on both sides and salt and pepper each side.  Grill over medium high direct heat 5-7 min each side. Making sure to baste the chicken multiple times each side with the BBQ sauce.

Plate the grilled chicken with the peach relish and serve with the extra BBQ Sauce.  A taste of Mumbia in your family’s kitchen!! Just think you didn’t even have to travel the 10,000 miles!!!

About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
