Peach-Glazed Grilled Chicken
Too many recipes for peach-glazed grilled chicken give you chicken that’s scorched or sickeningly sweet—or both. We wanted nicely glazed, unimpeachably peachy grilled chicken.
Why This Recipe Works
To avoid incinerating dinner, we start these glazed chicken parts in a disposable aluminum pan on the grill with plenty of peach preserves and cayenne for heat. When it’s nearly cooked through, we grill the chicken over direct heat to crisp the skin and caramelize the sweet peach glaze. A fresh peach and a whole jalapeño—grilled alongside the chicken and then chopped—add freshness and heat to the sauce, and a splash of cider vinegar brings welcome tang.
