If you can’t find ripe peaches or nectarines for the salsa, ripe mango or papaya would be a delicious alternative.

Ingredients

Peach(es)

1 large, or nectarine, pitted and finely chopped

Fresh tomato(es)

1 large, finely chopped

Basil

¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped

Balsamic vinegar

2 tsp

½ tsp, freshly ground

Yellow cornmeal

Instructions

  1. Combine the peach, tomato, basil, vinegar, 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon of pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Mix the cornmeal and the remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper on a sheet of wax paper. Press the chicken in the mixture to coat.
