Chicken Skewers with Peach Salsa

You’ll need:

3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 tablespoon of reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon of packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
8 ounces of skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 of a medium peach pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons of chopped red sweet pepper
2 teaspoons of finely chopped red onion
2 teaspoons of snipped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
1/4 teaspoon of finely chopped and seeded jalapeno chile pepper

The good part:

Using a resealable plastic bag inside a deep bowl, combine the rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and ginger. Add in your chicken strips, seal the bag and shake it up to coat the chicken. Place the coated chicken in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.

Once marinated, drain the chicken of the marinade stock and thread it onto 10-inch-long skewers. If using a charcoal grill, place chicken on the grill for 5 to 7 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink. Make sure to turn it occasionally. On a gas grill, preheat the grill and reduce to medium heat before placing skewers on the rack and covering.

As for the salsa, in a small bowl, combine peach, sweet pepper, onion, cilantro, lime juice and jalapeno pepper.

Dip your chicken skewers into the salsa and enjoy!
