September Mayhem

I guess the frigid weather of January is to blame for all September birthdays. Including my own. On top of all the celebrations, I find this time of year so crazy. The kids start up their activities, race season is ramping up, then will quickly crash. So many fun things, but busy nonetheless.

Dinners this week have consisted of whatever is on sale and whatever comes easy. So far, it's been tacos, chili and meatloaf (as you probably guessed, there was a special on ground beef). I figure I better raise the bar a bit and put some effort into a nice BBQ dinner while the weather is still being kind. Still has to prove quick and easy though. This one looks yummy:

Grilled Chicken and Peaches with Chipotle Peach Dressing

1/3 cup peach jam
1/3 cup peach juice
4 tsp. red wine vinegar
2 tsp. adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles (usually in the Mexican section by the taco stuff)
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro
3 large peaches cut into 8 wedges (skin on)
4 chicken breasts

Heat up the grill. Meanwhile, stir jam with juice, vinegar and adobo sauce. Then add 2 tsp oil, cilantro. Transfer 1/4 cup of this dressing into a small bowl and use to brush on peaches and chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill chicken until cooked through (about 7 minutes per side). Grill peaches until slightly charred (about 2 minutes)

Place chicken and peaches on plate and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Serve with salad.
