What's For Dinner: Chicken Kebabs with Fresh Peach Salsa

When we got peaches in our CSA box this weekend, I knew I wanted to try this recipe for peach salsa. I had seen it on a website a while back and thought I could modify it to suit my tastes.

Here's how it looked:

Grilled Chicken Kebabs with Fresh Peach Salsa

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 24 (2-inch) pieces
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 32 (2-inch) pieces
  • 3 bell peppers, various colors, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups diced peaches (2 - 3)
  • 1 diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeño pepper (I used hot cherry peppers form my garden)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  1. Preheat broiler. Combine first 9 ingredients in a shallow dish; let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Thread onion pieces, pepper pieces and chicken pieces alternately onto each of 8 (12-inch) skewers. Place skewers on grill (coated with cooking spray for ease of turning). Grill 12 minutes or until chicken is done, turning occasionally.
  3. Combine nectarines and remaining ingredients in a bowl. 
  4. Serve - 2 skewers and about 3/4 cup salsa for each serving.

This was a great tasting dinner.  The sweet and spicy mixture of the salsa was wonderful - I could eat that alone!  We had it with grilled corn (!) and peas, both from the garden.  Delicious!
