Balsamic Peach Chicken Kabobs include an easy marinade, tender chicken, fresh peaches, basil, and a drizzle of yummy balsamic glaze. This is the perfect entree for entertaining during the warmer months!
Peaches were made for the grill. It’s true. They’re probably the most perfect fruit in general (so says me) but there’s something about how sweet and soft they are after spending a few minutes over an open flame. It’s pretty special. So clearly I wanted to toss them on a kabob!
How to do it? Let your chicken marinade. Assemble the kabobs by alternating between chunks of tender marinated chicken and peaches. Grill. Create your balsamic glaze. Drizzle. You’re done!
Oh and about that balsamic glaze! The glaze is the result of simmering one cup of balsamic vinegar until it thickens and reduces. The bitterness that’s natural to balsamic vinegar cooks out as it simmers. You’ll end up with approximately 1/4 cup of this very rich and tasty glaze that I seriously cannot get enough of.
I love this entree for the family at home but it’s even better for entertaining. Because who wouldn’t be impressed by this entree? You’re going to love it!
How long should you marinade?
The longer you marinade the more pronounced the flavor will be. You can let it work it’s magic for as little as 30 minutes and up to 12 hours. I don’t recommend longer than 12 hours because your meat can start to breakdown and the texture changes if it sits in a marinade for too long. (That goes for any marinade.)
