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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Made this on a charcoal grill. So quick, easy and delicious. I made it with the Herbed Couscous and almond stuffed eggplant from the same July/August 2020 issue. This is by far my favorite cooking magazine. Loaded with so many choices! Read More

This is a very mild and delicately flavored meal. I love the tarragon in the dressing! I will definitely make this again, but I will grill more peaches. Read More

This was a great recipe, and a surprisingly nice blend of flavors. Did not have any white balsamic vinegar, so used white wine vinegar. Read More
