Grilled Basil Chicken & Peach Salad

Chef Remi

What is it about just a touch of honey that instantly screams ‘summer?’

The honey in this vinaigrette tempers the sharpness of the vinegar beautifully, and lifts this salad to ‘summer in a bowl!’

How To Make Your Grilled Basil Chicken & Peach Salad With Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette:

  1. Skin your garlic cloves by crushing them between a chef’s knife blade and a cutting board. Then finely mince.

  2. Chop up your basil roughly using herb scissors. Juice your lemon.

  3. In a small bowl, place the garlic, basil, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and whisk together using a small balloon whisk. Use the back of a tablespoon to press the basil against the side of the mixing bowl as this will release more of the flavor.

  4. Place the chicken breasts into a zip lock plastic bag and pound with a meat mallet so the meat is even in thickness.

  5. Pour in the basil mixture on top of the chicken and seal bag, ensuring you remove all the air. Turn the bag over so all the chicken is coated thoroughly. Place your chicken breasts in the fridge and chill for 2-5 hours.

  6. Place a BBQ grill mat onto your outdoor (or indoor) grill and heat grill to 450°F (no more scrubbing grates clean afterwards).

  7. Take your chicken out of the fridge and use kitchen tongs to pick the breasts out of the plastic bag and onto the hot BBQ grill mat.

  8. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side until done. Use a cooking thermometer to make sure you have cooked the chicken through to 165°F, the safe cooking temperature.

  9. Transfer your chicken breasts to a wooden cutting board, and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

  10. In the meantime, in a small bowl, place the remaining olive oil, Dijon mustard, white balsamic vinegar, honey, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Whisk well with a small balloon whisk.

  11. Place your vinaigrette into the fridge to chill until you are ready to use.

  12. Using a precise paring knife, slice your peaches, remove the husk and kernels from your corn ears, and thinly slice your red onion.

  13. Place a small skillet on medium heat and, while it is heating, roughly chop up your pecans. Add the pecans to the hot pan and move them around constantly using a solid spatula. Watch them like a hawk as they can easily burn!

  14. Chop up your cooked chicken breasts coarsely using heavy duty kitchen shears (easier than using a knife).

  15. In your salad / presentation bowl, place the peaches, corn, onions, lettuce, pecans and chicken, and toss well together.

  16. Crumble over the goat’s cheese. Take your vinaigrette out of the fridge and quickly whisk it again using a small balloon whisk.

  17. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad, and serve immediately with serving tongs.

Natasha said: Functional, great size, even dishwasher safe!

I seriously CANNOT say enough good things about these tongs! Where to begin....they are heat resistant up to 600 degrees, which is awesome because I am known to melt a lot of my cookware (or use metal cookware, thus scratching my pans). They are dishwasher safe, which is awesome. The sizes are great and they're super functional, but honestly I think the best part is the little button at the top, which you pull up on to close them. I HATE how a lot of tongs stay open, taking up so much room in the silverware drawer--no worries with that here! And to top it off, they even come with a lifetime warranty! This is my first Chef Remi purchase--I will definitely be back for more!

John said: Bad can opener

This can opener opened a few cans then broke. Tried to contact customer service, no luck. Back to Wal-Mart $2.00 tool, much better.

Stefani Main said: Awesome thermometer

This thermometer works awesome. Easy to use and easy to read. Also love it comes with a cap for when you aren't using it!

Lisa Pope said: Love these tongs

This is a great set of tongs, I love that you set a set of two and that they are reasonable priced. They are very comfortable in my hand an are easy to maneuver while grabbing food. The rubber is high quality and like never having to worry about scratching my pans or them melting. They clean up great just with soap and water or in my dishwasher. The best part is the locking tab so they save space and are easy to carry around. I am thinking of buying more of these as house warming presents.

Sima Levin said: The best products

I am using a lot of Chef Remi products. All of them really good. The last is Kitchen sturdy shears. It is a
Multyfunctional thing. A cut the whole chicken with them, opened beer and cracked nuts. Cut plastic covers and more. They looked nice too. Recommend to everybody !
