Grilled Chicken Thighs with Curried Peach Sauce

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 30 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp canola oil 15 mL
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp peeled and grated fresh ginger 30 mL
  • 1 tsp curry powder 5 mL
  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar 7 mL
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 2 tbsp non-fat plain Greek yogourt 30 mL
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice 15 mL
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs

Directions

  • Step 1

    In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onion, ginger and curry powder until onion has softened, about 5 min. Add peaches, sugar and salt; cook until peaches break down, about 5 min. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Step 2

    Using an immersion blender, purée peach mixture. Add yogourt and lime juice; stir to blend, adding about 2 tbsp (30mL) water (if desired) to achieve runnier consistency.

  • Step 3

    Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush all but 1/4 cup (60 mL) peach sauce on chicken thighs. Place chicken on greased grill; close lid and grill until chicken is cooked through, about 4 min. per side, basting twice with remaining peach sauce.

Tip

Dilute the peach sauce with a few tablespoons soy sauce and cider vinegar to create a flavourful curried salad dressing – perfect for quinoa salads or rice pilafs.
