Grilled Chicken and Peaches

In my search for healthier recipes to make for my family, I came across Grilled Chicken and Peaches on the kraftrecipes.com website.

The recipe calls for the following ingredients:

1 cup  prepared GOOD SEASONS Italian Dressing Mix
4 small  boneless skinless chicken breasts(1 lb.)
1/4 cup  balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup  molasses
4 ripe peaches, halved, pitted
And here are the instructions on how to make it:

POUR dressing over chicken; cover. Refrigerate 1 hour to marinate. Drain chicken; discard marinade. Mix vinegar and molasses until well blended; brush onto cut sides of peach halves. Set aside.

PREHEAT greased grill to medium heat. Grill chicken 8 min. on each side or until chicken is cooked through (180°F), adding peaches to the grill for the last 6 min. of the chicken grilling time and turning and brushing peaches occasionally with any remaining vinegar mixture.

PLACE chicken on serving platter. Cut peaches into slices; spoon over chicken. Drizzle with any remaining vinegar mixture.

This is perfectly acceptable and probably very delicious, but I had to make a few changes:

First of all, to the ingredients, I made these changes:

1 cup  prepared WishBone Fat-Free Italian Dressing
5 small  boneless skinless chicken breasts(1 lb.)
1/4 cup  red wine vinegar
1/2 cup  molasses
1 can peaches, drained
To the instructions, I made these changes:

POUR dressing over chicken; cover. Refrigerate 1 hour to marinate. Mix vinegar and molasses until well blended; add drained canned peaches. Set aside. Drain chicken; discard marinade.

ADD chicken to a heated frying pan.  Cook over medium heat until mostly cooked through.  Add peaches and sauce mixture.  Cook until completely done.

SERVE chicken and peaches over white rice.  Drizzle with sauce.

This was a huge hit with my family.  I will definitely be making this again.  And it was only something like 260 calories per serving for the chicken.  I served with white rice and broccoli.

  1. Ah! I was wondering about the “grilling” bit – seemed to be a bbq recipe and that’s not happening at the moment here. If it works in a pan, I might give it a go. Part of your small steps I take it?

    Sounds delicious!
