Mix sweet peaches into a barbecue sauce that gets a slight kick from chili powder for an amazing flavor combination. Canned tomatoes and tomato paste serve as the base for the barbecue sauce. Strained tomatoes are tomatoes that have been peeled, seeded, and pureed. Look for them in jars or cartons in larger supermarkets or specialty stores. If you can't find them, use regular canned tomato puree in this recipe. Serve this dish with coleslaw or potato salad.


Olive oil

3 tsp

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 small, finely chopped


1 small clove(s), minced

Chili powder

1 tsp


2 medium, ripe, pitted and sliced

Canned tomato sauce

Canned tomato paste

1 Tbsp

Apple cider vinegar

¼ cup(s)


1 tsp, yellow variety

Table salt

¾ tsp

Cayenne pepper

¼ tsp

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

  1. Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Preheat grill to medium or prepare medium fire.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and cook, stirring often, until onion begins to soften, 3 minutes. Add peaches, strained tomatoes, tomato paste, cider vinegar, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and cayenne and bring to boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peaches are very tender, about 8 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes.

  4. Place chicken, remaining 2 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl and turn chicken to coat. Place chicken on grill rack and grill, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 10-12 minutes, basting with 1/2 cup of sauce during last 5 minutes of grilling. Serve chicken with remaining sauce.
