1 cup peach preserves
2 cloves of garlic minced or grated
2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 bone in and skin on chicken breast split (or 8 bone-in, skin on thighs)
4 ripe peaches pitted and cut in half
✔ Preheat the grill to medium hot.
✔ For the glaze, in a medium bowl, combine the peach preserves, garlic, olive oil, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper and mix well. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the glaze.
✔ Preheat the oven to 350 F.
✔ Brush the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
✔ Place the chicken on the grill skin side down and cook for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the chicken over and brush some glaze on top. Cook for another 5-6 minutes. Flip the chicken, brush with the glaze and cook for an additional 2 - 3 minutes.
✔ Remove the chicken from the grill and place it in an oven safe dish. Generously brush more glaze onto the chicken. Place in the oven and cook for about 30-40 minutes or until cooked through.
✔ Place the peach halves on the grill cut side down, grill for 2 minutes. Turn and brush with the reserved glaze. Grill until the peaches are soft (about 3 more minutes).
✔ Transfer to a platter and serve.
