Fire Day Friday: Spicy Peach-Molasses Grilled Chicken

I’m having a bit of a creative block in the kitchen.  Which then also translates to a slight writers block when it comes to posts.  I can say that it all has to do with how much I’ve been working lately, but honestly, I really do think I’m just in a slump.  But, nice thing about being in a slump these days is that we always have the internet to help give us inspiring new ideas!  Or it can at least give us recipes we can play with to create a fantastic meal in the kitchen.  This is one of those meals.  I was uninspired and needed to use up some peach preserves I had in the fridge, so I stumbled across this recipe on…. it was perfect!  Simple, delicious, and, well, let’s be honest, I didn’t have to think too hard when it came to putting this together….exactly what I needed 🙂

Spicy Peach-Molasses Grilled Chicken
Adapted from
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup peach preserves
1 teaspoon molasses
3/4 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together except the chicken.  Spread half of the mixture of the chicken – reserve the other half for later.  Allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
Preheat grill to 375-400 degrees.  Oil the grill grates.  Place the chicken over the fire and allow to grill for 5-8 minutes or until nice and brown.  Flip the chicken and spread remaining sauce over chicken.  Allow to grill for 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3 minutes before cutting into the chicken.  Enjoy!


I wasn’t a big fan of fruity glazes until late last year. This one sounds quite tasty since I like grilled peaches. I bet it cooks on to the chicken, yum!

Jenn as you know I’m a big fan of fruit and meats together, especially grilled!! I’ve got the same jar of peach jam sitting around – this looks delicious and a perfect way to use up that jam 🙂 Hope your slump decides to leave soon, I know how it is. Believe me!!!
