Grilled Peaches

Peach season is coming to an end, but you can still find some delicious fruit at the store. This recipe is perfect for any slightly firm peaches. Fresh off the grill, this dessert gives you the flavor of a homemade cobbler, without the crust.

Ingredients:
2 large peaches cubed
1 tablespoon cane syrup
1 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoons molasses
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt






Begin by soaking bamboo skewers in water for a half an hour. This keeps the bamboo from burning. Skewer the peach cubes. Combine all the above ingredients and brush glaze over peach cubes. Lightly spray all sides with cooking spray. Place on a preheated  350 degree grill. Grill about 5 minutes each side, or until grill marks appear.  Remove from heat, allow to cool, and enjoy. For a more savory dessert, drizzle lightly with balsamic glaze after grilling.

Bourbon Street Chicken

We recently got back from vacation. Not having much in the refrigerator, last night's dinner was a pressure pot chicken. Because we ate a lot of chicken on our trip, we wanted something different. My wife suggested Bourbon Street Chicken. Being a non-drinker, I needed a substitute for the bourbon. Thanks to McCormick's Bourbon Brown Sugar seasoning, I got that covered.

Ingredients:
3 teaspoons McCormick's Bourbon Brown Sugar seasoning
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon molasses
1/4 cup no sodium chicken stock
2 precooked chicken thighs

 Start by adding all ingredients except chicken,  to a small wok. Bring to a low boil. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add chicken and heat until warm. If you like a thicker sauce, add a small amount of corn starch.

Serve over brown rice, or as my wife likes, yellow zucchini.
