Grilled Chicken Recipe
I’m not willing to admit that summer is coming to an end just yet. When I see the bounty of peaches at the farmer’s market and my local produce department I am assured that there’s still a little bit of summer left….if even just a few more days. Being a Jersey girl means being a Jersey peach lover! Jersey is 4th in the nation for peach production producing between sixty and sixty six million pounds of peaches a year which is about 33 thousand tons! And believe it or not, each and every single Jersey peach is picked by hand! Holy moly! I’m tired just writing about it! But not too tired to make this fabulously delicious Grilled Chipotle Chicken ‘N Peaches recipe and hang on to summer for just a little bit longer!
