Lazy Gluten Free: Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce

Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease about four years ago, I ate a lot of chicken and rice. They were the easiest and safest foods I knew of as I began my journey into gluten-free living. Since that time, chicken has always been my go-to for quick and delicious meals. However, I now like to mix things to take a boring piece of chicken and make it fabulous.

Although my husband, Steven, informed me that he is not a big fan of chicken and fruit, I set out to show him that it actually is quite delicious. I came across this recipe for Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce in my Taste of Home Five Ingredient Recipes book (I told you a lot of my recipes would come from here). The recipe looked interesting, but sounded tasty, so I decided to give it a whirl. Turns out, it really was tasty and Steven enjoyed it too.

Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce

You will need:
1 cup sugar
2 tbs cornstarch
1 cup water
2 tbs peach or orange gelatin (JELL-O brand is GF)
1 medium peach, peeled and finely chopped
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz each)


In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin powder (I used peach flavor) and chopped peach; mix well until gelatin powder is dissolved. Set aside 1 cup for serving.


Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with some of the remaining peach sauce. Continue grilling for 6-8 minutes or until meat juices run clear, basting and turning several times. Serve with the reserved peach sauce.

Yield: 4 servings.
