Spicy Chicken with Pepper Peach Relish

We loved the flavors of this grilled chicken entree.  I found the recipe on the Taste of Home website. The salsa that tops the chicken adds such wonderful flavor to the dish.  The photo is by Taste of Home but mine turned out looking just as yummy.
Spicy Chicken Breasts with Pepper Peach Relish Recipe
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon each ground cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)

1/4 cup peach preserves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

2 medium peaches, peeled and finely chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh mint

Combine the salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg; rub over chicken.

In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients; set aside.  In a small bowl, combine the peaches, peppers, onion, mint and 2 tablespoons glaze; set aside.

Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.  Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170 degrees, basting frequently with reserved glaze.

Serve with relish.  Yield:  4 servings.

  1. Wow, Mom! This looks SO good! (And I'm excited that it calls for fresh mint, since we are growing mint this summer!) :)
