Chicken Thighs with Chipotle-Peach Sauce Recipe
Oxmoor House
Juicy, ripe peaches in peak season are key for this recipe. If your peaches are firm, let them stand on the kitchen counter for a few days until they're soft to the touch and have an enticing aroma. While the chicken and vegetables grill, prepare the chipotle-peach sauce.
