Grilled Chicken Peach Kebabs

With the temps warming up I have summer grilling on the brain. I love grilling our dinner in the summer time and try to use it as much as possible. One of my favorite easy go to meals is any kind of protein and veggies on a skewer. It’s easy to mix and match for picky eaters. One combo that everyone loves are these Grilled Chicken Peach Kebabs.

As soon as I see peaches in the grocery store, I grab them to make this easy grilled dinner. We love using peaches, but any kind of stone fruit will do. I’ve used plums and nectarines as substitutes before as well, and it’s just as delicious.

The key to this grilled chicken peach kebab recipe is really good apricot jam or fruit spread. It gives such a nice sweet flavor and glaze to the chicken. Soy sauce adds a hint of saltiness to the marinade as well.

Once you are done marinating the chicken, boil the leftover marinade to use as a basting glaze while grilling. Not only does it add a ton of flavor, but the glaze looks so pretty on the chicken.

    Sounds delicious! I’m confused about the vinegar…ingredient list calls for balsamic vinegar yet directions call for rice wine vinegar?
