Tips for making the best barbecue peach chicken:
- Peach preserves. This ingredient is crucial in the chicken. It makes it so sweet and delicious. I love peaches, but who knew peach would pair so perfectly with chicken?
You could also use peach jam, or blended up peaches as well. This substance is a little more thick and sticky, so we have found that it works a little better, and clings to the chicken more.
- Marinade the chicken for as long as you possibly can. We recommend marinating it for a good 24 hours before grilling it, just so it can really take on the sweet peach flavor.
- I also love to add a little extra bbq sauce, just because I want my chicken to soak up as much flavor as it possibly can. The bbq and peach combo is so delicious.
- The secret to moist and juicy chicken is low and slow. You will want to grill your chicken on low, for a longer amount of time.
- You will love the flavor and texture of it.
- Spread on extra glaze after you grill it. I am a total sauce person and usually dip every piece of chicken in sauce, but with this glaze, there is no need for that. It is the perfect chicken and sauce combo.
You will of course want to make a fresh marinade/sauce, and not use the one the raw chicken was sitting in.
I usually just mix a little of the peach preserves with some bbq sauce, and glaze it over the chicken with a basting brush once it is off the grill. So yummy.
