Grilled Peach & Brie Smothered Chicken


This super-fast and healthy smothered chicken tastes best on the deck with a chilled glass of gewürztraminer. The fruity white pairs nicely with the peaches here.

4 servings


  • 1 pound chicken cutlets

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt plus 1/8 teaspoon, divided

  • 1 firm ripe peach, halved

  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, sliced

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves, plus more for garnish

  • 1 (5 ounce) package baby arugula


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and salt.

  3. Oil the grill rack. Grill peach halves, cut-side down, until lightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice. Grill the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 160 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and top the chicken with the peach slices and cheese. Grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F and the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  4. Whisk oil, vinegar, tarragon and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add arugula and toss to coat. Serve the chicken on top of the arugula. Garnish with more tarragon, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
