Grilled Chicken with Peach and Apple Salsa

Grilled Chicken with Peach and Apple Salsa is one of my favorite dishes to create this time of year. Walking through the grocery store this past weekend I couldn’t help but notice the enormous, brightly colored peaches. I just had to buy some! During the summer heat I love to mix summer fruit with lighter meats. I have been hooked on fruit salsa’s lately, it is perfect with chicken, pork chops, cinnamon chips and grilled halibut. Juicy peaches, tart apples, sweet honey, cinnamon, and cilantro are combined to create a wonderful accompaniment to grilled chicken. Feeling spicy? Add a minced jalapeno pepper to kick it up a notch! 🙂
