There is something about Bourbon Peach Butter that sounds really good doesn't it?
Then again butter anything is usually pretty amazing. This was the first time I made my own "butter" and it was everything I expected to be and pretty easy too.
I can taste this dish all over again just looking at this photo. Such a good dinner! Salty, a little fruity and still healthy.
The grilled chicken was seasoned with some salt and pepper and just a little crisp on the outside from the grill marks but soft and moist on the inside.
We had some left over "butter" and I can't wait to try it on some chicken wings instead of breasts next time.
I think if I was a fruit I'd be a peach, sometimes I even look like a peach! This summer I am going to try and use peaches as many ways as I can. I think I am going to work on a savory, peach breakfast next!
