|Oh, peach, you beautiful peach.|
Now, to the food processor with these freshly grilled babies. We'll add a tablespoon each of Dijon and apple cider vinegar, and 2 cloves of peeled garlic.
Process until smooth and give it a taste. Unless the peaches are really ripe and sweet, a spoonful of Splenda will improve this and balance the heat of the Chipotle Chili Pepper too. Be careful! A teaspoon or two is probably more than enough unless you really like it hot. It's pretty easy to find this type of pepper in most groceries now, but if yours doesn't have it just get canned chipotles in adobo sauce and throw in one of those.
Now pour over the chicken breasts in a gallon ziplock bag. There will be enough to marinate up to six pieces of chicken. Leave them overnight or up to 24 hrs. in the fridge and then Go Grilling! Shake the chicken to get most of the marinade off, it's thick so some will be left and its natural sugars will help the chicken brown nicely.
My usual note for fellow Take Shape for Lifers:
If you're in maintenance cooking some of this marinade with the chicken as a sauce is OK. Otherwise, you can rinse the chicken before grilling it, or if you shake most of the thick marinade off you should be looking at only an extra 4 or 5 grams of carb once cooked.
