Preparation

Chicken

  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat and brush the grates with oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill the chicken skin side down for 5 minutes until lightly charred. Flip the chicken over, brush with the peach bbq sauce and reduce heat to low. Continue to grill for 40-45 minutes, while occasionally basting with the bbq sauce, until the chicken is cooked through and an instant thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 165°F.

Peach BBQ Sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add the peaches and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, salt and garlic powder to the saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.

Ratatouille

  1. Meanwhile, while the chicken is grilling heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  2. Add the bell peppers, zucchini, corn, asparagus, scallions, thyme and oregano to the skillet. Cooke for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the diced tomatoes and adjust seasoning to taste. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are soft and stew-like. Serve with grilled chicken.
