Surprise! We are having #SundaySupper today instead of on Sunday. Today #SundaySupper teamed up with Gallo Family Vineyards to share Labor Day recipes. Can you believe it is already the end of summer and were thinking of Labor Day? I am going to miss all of the summer produce, so with that in mind I had to use fresh peaches that I picked up from the Farmers Market in todays’ recipe; Peach Mango Grilled Chicken over Quinoa. An amazing simple meal with a ton of flavor.
This dish is so easy to make. Its light, refreshing, savory with a pinch of sweetness. I think it is perfect for Labor Day and it’s perfect for a quick dinner. It’s grilled chicken, covered with a peach mango sauce that is made with Gallo Family Vineyards Riesling, topped on a bed of quinoa. Delicious!!
To make the dish I simply sautéed together fresh peaches, mango, cornstarch a pinch of sugar and GFV Riesling. I cooked it until it became thick and slightly saucy. To make it more creamy, I added it to my blender and processed it until it was slightly smooth, with little chunks of fruit. While I was cooking the sauce, I cooked my chicken on the grill. I didn’t add much seasoning to the chicken, just a little bit of olive oil and pepper. One thing I did was cheat. I bought frozen quinoa that was already cooked. All I had to do was heat it up in the microwave. The whole dinner took about 20 minutes to make. Not to bad, and it tasted restaurant quality. I was surprised because I thought with the fruit that it would be sweet, but it wasn’t. It was a perfect balance of sweet, but also savory. It was a hit with the family. I think quinoa is finally starting to grow on them. Yeah!
- Serves: 4 servings
- Serving size: 4 oz chicken, ½ cup quinoa and ¼ of the sauce
- 2 large peaches, seeded (peel if desired), cut into bite size pieces
- 1 cup mango, peeled, seeded, cut into bite size pieces
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- 2 tsp. sugar
- ½ cup Gallo Family Vineyards Riesling
- 1 lbs. chicken breast, skinless, boneless
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- ¼ tsp. ground pepper
- 2 cups quinoa, cooked
- In a skillet add peaches, mango, cornstarch and sugar, mix together. Add Gallo Family Vineyards Riesling. Cook over medium, low heat for 10 minutes; until thick and soften, stirring constantly. Add to a blender and pulse a few times until it smooths out a pinch, but leaves chunks of fruit.
- Set the grill to medium heat. Brush the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with ground pepper. Cook one side of the chicken for about 7 minutes, flip and cook for another 5 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink.
- Evenly divide the quinoa between 4 plates. Add 4 oz. of chicken over each plate then top the chicken with peach and mango sauce.
I am absolutely loving this meal and I think you will too! So easy to make, perfect for a summer night meal. I am loving Gallo Family Vineyards new Riesling. The Riesling whispers of honeysuckle, juicy peach, pear and ripe citrus. Whether you are serving barbecue from the grill for family and friends, or a savory pasta for two, this incredibly versatile wine will pair beautifully. It’s the perfect compliment to your summer dinners, and goes very well with a night on the patio watching the sun set!
