Total Time: 30 minutes

Peach Chicken with Chargrilled Asparagus


  • 1 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (Pantry)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (Pantry)
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus spears
  • 8 (6-inch) bamboo skewers (Pantry)
  • 1 teaspoon + 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1 cup peach preserves
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
Steps1. Preheat the grill (or grill pan) to medium. Season chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper (wash hands).


Place chicken on the grill and close the lid (or cover loosely with foil); grill for 14–16 minutes, turning often until chicken is 165°F.

2. Meanwhile, remove tough root ends from the asparagus. Divide spears into 4 bunches and align each bunch in a flat row. Thread 2 wooden skewers crosswise through each bunch, forming a raft shape. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon oil over asparagus and place on grill; grill for 4–5 minutes, turning often, until tender.

3. Combine in a medium bowl: 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic and 1 tablespoon of each oil, soy sauce, and mustard. Remove asparagus from skewers and add to bowl; toss to coat.

4. Whisk preserves, green onions, sriracha, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon mustard, and 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic until blended. Brush 1/4 cup glaze over chicken during the last minute of cook time. Slice chicken; serve with asparagus and remaining glaze for dipping.
