Dinner for $10 (or Less): Grilled Chicken & Peaches in a Summery Glaze

Grilled chicken & peaches in a summer glaze

Summer, summer, summertime! With the hottest season of the year officially here, it's time to break out the seasonal bites and head to the grill.


I don't know about you, but I love peaches -- like, for real (for real). They're sweet, they're juicy, and they can be extremely tasty. And as much as I enjoy digging into this summery fruit, nothing beats combining it with meats -- like chicken -- for the ultimate seasonal dish.

If you have yet to try peaches and chicken, honey, you're missing out!
