Grilled Lime Chicken + Fresh Peach Salsa

We are at the very tail end of Summer 2019…the “unofficial last weekend of Summer” aka Labor Day, has already passed…so let’s go out in the BEST possible way… Grilling something ABSOLUTELY delicious for a bunch of family & friends this weekend!

Peaches are ripe and ready locally around the US right now, but don’t wait! They will disappear within a few weeks.

“I made this and it was delicious!! (Had enough for lunch the next day – bonus!!)” – Turissa

“This was delish! I did the chicken as kebabs with grilled veggies and served the salsa on the side. So easy and good.” – Annmarie

“@CleanFoodSrush This Grilled Lime Chicken and Fresh Peach Salsa was seriously one of THE best chicken dishes that I have had in a long time! It was my dinner for tonight, with a side of Basmati Rice!” – Trisha

Peaches are a rich source of potassium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, and vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

They are also a good source of vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), vitamin K (phylloquinone), vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B-6, and folate.

Peaches offer lots of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, and copper.

Peaches also help in maintaining healthy skin thanks to the presence of a good amount of vitamin C, which also provides a defense against harmful free radicals and infections. makes 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsps olive oil, or avocado oil, divided
  • 2 Tbsps fresh lime juice
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste about 1/4 teaspoon each

For the peach salsa:

  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 2 large ripe peaches, seeded and diced
  • 3 green onions, green parts only, sliced
  • a big handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and diced very small
  • 1 fresh garlic clove, minced
  • juice AND the zest of 1 large lime


Place chicken in a large Ziploc bag, or sealable fridge container with garlic powder, chili powder, 1 Tbsp oil, fresh lime juice, sea salt, and pepper.

Seal the bag, or lid and gently toss or shake to combine and coat well.

Marinate your chicken, in the refrigerator, for at least 30 minutes, or if time allows, overnight. In a large bowl, gently combine all peach salsa ingredients, and season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve (best eaten within a few hours of preparing)Heat an outdoor grill or a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. Rub or brush your grill with remaining oil. Grill the marinated chicken for 4-5 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

Serve your grilled chicken with peach salsa as shown and enjoy!
