3-Ingredient Pesto-Grilled Chicken with Peaches image

Find a great prepared pesto and you can have dinner in no time! In this easy grilled dinner, the pesto works as both a simple marinade for the chicken and a finishing sauce. Grilling the peaches caramelizes their natural sugars and adds a smoky flavor to the stone fruit, turning them into a delicious side.

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 3/4 cups store-bought or homemade pesto, divided
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided, plus more for grill
1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
8 small bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 3 pounds)
4 ripe peaches, halved

Steps:

  • Whisk 1 1/2 cups pesto, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Add chicken to bowl and slide your hand between skin and meat to loosen skin. Rub half of pesto mixture under skin, then half over outside. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  • Prepare a grill for medium-high heat or heat a grill pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high; oil grate or pan. Season chicken with remaining 3/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Grill chicken, skin side down, covered, until golden brown and lightly charred, 7-9 minutes. Turn and grill until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 165°F, 5-7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  • Brush peach halves with oil. Reduce heat to medium and grill peaches, cut side down, until warmed through, 2-3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk remaining 1/4 cup pesto and 2 Tbsp. oil in a small bowl. Arrange chicken and peaches on a platter and drizzle pesto sauce over. Serve remaining sauce alongside.

  • To flatten the chicken breasts, position each breast half, boned side up, on your work surface. Put your nonworking hand on top of the breast to keep it in place. Use your working hand to position the blade of a sharp carving knife horizontally, parallel to your work surface, with the blade placed halfway up the flesh on one long side. Carefully, while keeping the blade absolutely parallel, drive the knife into the flesh, moving the blade up and away from you and then down and toward you, leaving about ½ inch of flesh attached at the opposite end. Open the breast and lay it flat. If, after opening, you see that you didn’t go in far enough, use the blade to slice a little deeper.
  • Lay one opened breast half (cut side up) in the center of a sheet of waxed paper and place another sheet of paper on top. Using a smooth, heavy meat mallet, give the chicken several firm taps (not whacks) starting at the center and going out toward the edge of the meat. The aim is to thin the meat slightly and to level the outer surface. Run your hand over the top layer of paper and, if not level, give those higher areas several more soft taps with the mallet. Do this same procedure with the remaining chicken. When finished, remove the paper from each piece and stack the chicken in a 13 × 9-inch nonreactive dish.
  • Sprinkle the chicken pieces on both sides, lightly but evenly, with salt and black pepper. Mix the pesto with the lemon juice and pour this over the chicken. Using clean hands, rub the pesto all over both sides of each piece. Cover the dish and chill until 30 minutes before ready to cook.
  • Assemble the tomato topping. Use a whisk to combine the 1/3 cup of olive oil, the lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, mustard, salt, pepper, and chopped herbs in a medium-size nonreactive bowl. Add the prepared tomatoes and fold the mixture together, combining well. Cover the bowl and set it aside.

  • Lemon Pesto Marinade. Store-bought pesto, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt is all you need to make this marinade. Use it for chicken you plan to pair with tomatoes, mozzarella, or any other Italian-inspired flavors.
  • All-Purpose Simple Chicken Marinade. The ultimate go-to marinade for chicken breasts, this easy recipe is made with just a handful of simple ingredients and can be paired with just about any flavor profile or cooking method.

  • Three-Ingredient Magic Summer Sauce. This sauce can be used as a condiment, but it’s also a wonderful marinade for chicken breasts. Made with yogurt, Dijon mustard, and Sriracha, it has a wonderful, slightly spicy flavor.
  • Buffalo Chicken Marinade. This recipe takes store-bought Buffalo sauce and adds honey, lime juice, and a handful of spices to take it to the next level.
  • Italian Dressing Marinade. OK, yes: This recipe is technically a dressing. But it is also one of our absolute favorite marinades for chicken breasts! In fact, we’ve been singing the praises of using Italian dressing as a quick chicken marinade for quite some time now!
