Chicken & Peach Skewers
Fresh, juicy summer peaches add fiber, potassium and vitamin C to this meal, and are particularly delicious when caramelized on the grill.
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 jalapeno, finely diced
2 T jerk seasoning
1 T maple syrup
8–12 skewers (recommend metal)
Make the marinade before your trip. Combine the lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, jerk seasoning and maple syrup in a sealed plastic container. Cut the chicken breasts in 1-inch cubes before your trip. Place in a food storage bag. At the campsite, shake the marinade well and pour it into the bag with the chicken 30–60 minutes before grilling. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water while the chicken marinates. Heat the grill to medium high. Cut peaches into ¾-inch slices. Skewer the chicken cubes alternating with the peaches. Grill the skewers 60–90 seconds, on all sides, until charred. Turn grill to low and place the skewers on a sheet of foil with the edges bent up. Close lid and cook about 10 minutes longer, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through. Pour any of the drippings in the foil over the chicken.
