BBQ Chicken with Peach and Feta Slaw

A simple, sweet-and-salty dish that’s perfect for busy weeknights.

I’m such a Cooking Light fangirl. I’ve been subscribed to that magazine for yeeeeears now, and I still look forward to each new issue.

I swear I dog ear almost every single recipe when I do my first pass through the magazine. And this one was one of the first that I made from the July issue.

BBQ Chicken with Peach and Feta Slaw: A simple, sweet-and-salty dish that's perfect for busy weeknights.

I love that this dish uses fresh peaches and one of my favorite ingredients – packaged broccoli slaw. I love how hearty it is, and it’s a nice change of pace from cabbage-filled slaws.

This dish was sweet and tangy, and had just the right amount of bacon. I used one of my favorite Stubb’s Bar-B-Q sauces – Sweet Heat. I think it actually may have been a little too sweet with the peaches, so next time I’d probably go with something like their Original Bar-B-Q Sauce.

This was a nice, light meal that held up well for leftovers the next day – it was great cold, right out of the fridge!
