Grilled Chicken Legs with Peach Salsa

I love using summer fruits to make fresh sweet salsas. Peaches and tomatoes make for a juicy, sweet and tart combo that perfectly complements smoky grilled chicken. Try it over grilled skinless boneless cutlets as well.


  • Prep Time : 12 min
  • Cook Time : 38 min
  • Ready Time : 50 min




  • 4 small ripe peaches or nectarines, pitted and diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons torn basil leaves or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 2 tablespoons torn mint leaves, optional
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 skin-on, bone-in chicken legs with thighs attached


In a medium bowl, combine peaches, red onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, basil, mint, honey, and ½ teaspoon salt and stir well. Set aside.
Season chicken with remaining 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Grill over medium high heat for 30 to 38 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through. To serve, top grilled chicken with peach salsa.
