Peach Barbecue Marinade
salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
Mix together barbecue sauce, peach preserves, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl.
Trim fat from the chicken thighs, if needed. Add the chicken thighs to the bowl and mix until the meat is coated (or place the marinade and chicken in a gallon-size storage bag).
Let the chicken sit in the marinade for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 24-hours.
Pre-heat the grill to medium-high and then sear the chicken thighs for 4-5 minutes per side, until the skin is nicely brown.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, close the grill lid (or loosely cover with foil) and grill the chicken until it is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165° F.
Transfer chicken to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Add an extra 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of lemon juice if the barbecue sauce is on the sweet side.
To reduce the calories, remove the chicken skin before marinating.
Vinegar can be substituted for the lemon juice.
Add red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper for a spicier twist.
