Grilled Chicken & Peach Kabobs
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Serves: 4


2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

3 Tbsp. canola oil, divided

1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

Salt, to taste

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 24 cubes (about 1-inch each)

1 green bell pepper, cut into 24 (1-inch) pieces

1 small red onion, cut into eight wedges, layers separated

2 cans (15.25 oz. each) Del Monte®Lite Peach Halves, drained and peaches cut in half

16 (10-inch) bamboo skewers


1. Whisk together mustard, 2 Tbsp. oil, rosemary and salt, if desired, in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and stir until well coated.

2. Use 2 skewers at a time to make turning food on grill pan easier. On each double-skewer, alternate 3 pieces each of chicken, bell peppers and onion and 2 pieces of peach.

3. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush the grill with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, and cook the kabobs 4 minutes. Gently turn (if peaches stick to the grill, slide a spatula underneath to gently release). Cook 4 more minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside.

4. Serve with cooked plain or flavored couscous, if desired.

NOTE: To boost the flavor of couscous, prepare with peach juice instead of water. Reserve juice when draining peaches into a glass measuring cup. If needed, add additional water to equal the total amount of liquid required, and prepare couscous according to package directions.
