I haven’t pick up Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook yet but several of her recipes have caught my eye. This Grilled Chicken with Peach Barbecue Sauce is the first I have tried.
Friends were over for a barbecue and it was so nice to sit back and relax after a long. I made roasted potatoes and grilled veggies to with the meal and served a Strawberry Nectarine Crumble topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The dessert is clearly no on the Weight Watchers Diet.

Peach Barbecue Sauce
adapted from Gwynth Paltrow
Serves: 4 Calories: 252.6 Weight Watchers Points Plus: 5
1 cup chopped peeled fresh peaches or 9-10 ounces frozen sliced peaches, thawed, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo or 1 teaspoon soy sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 skinless, boneless organic chicken breasts
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Season lightly with salt and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer until peaches are very soft and flavors meld, about 10 minutes. Remove pan from heat; let cool.
Pour peach mixture into a blender and purée until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place half the sauce in a medium bowl; add the chicken and turn to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, or cover and chill for up to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce.
Prepare a grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill rack with oil. Grill chicken until browned and almost cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side. Brush on all sides with reserved sauce; grill until glazed and cooked through, 1-2 minutes per side. Slice crosswise. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
Note: if you like it a bit spicier I would put in 1/2 a chipotle pepper instead of the adobe sauce.
