  • 3 tablespoons olive oil can use neutral oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 - 3 chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 1/2 small red onion roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce from the can
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons water to rinse blender

Grilled peaches:

  • 3 peaches cored and halved
  • A small handful of fresh cilantro chopped


  • Blend all except the water until smooth. Place chicken thighs in a zip top bag along with the marinade.
  • Add water to blender and swish around to “wash” it out and add to bag. Remove excess air out of the bag and seal. Squeeze the bag to get everything mixed. Marinate for 1 hour to overnight.
  • Preheat grill to medium high heat. Place the chicken onto the grill. The chicken should still be nicely covered in the marinade because it’s nice and thick. Grill 5 to 6 minutes per side, until the chicken is charred nicely and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, place the peaches on grill and grill for 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill and top with cilantro.
  • Remove the chicken from the grill and serve with the peaches. Enjoy.
