Directions
1.
For marinade, in a shallow nonmetallic dish combine wine, orange peel, orange juice, olive oil or cooking oil, rosemary, and bay leaf. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and chill about 1 hour.
2.
Meanwhile, for salsa, peel and pit the fresh peaches or pit the nectarines. Finely chop peaches or nectarines. In a bowl combine peaches or nectarines, chopped red or green sweet pepper, avocado, green onions, lime peel, lime juice, and cilantro. Cover and chill until serving time.
3.
Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Grill chicken, skin side down, on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 20 minutes. Turn chicken; grill for 15 to 20 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. (Or, place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat for 28 to 32 minutes, turning once.) Brush with marinade up to last 5 minutes of grilling or broiling. Serve chicken with salsa. Makes 6 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Prepare marinade up to 24 hours head; cover and chill. Prepare salsa; cover and chill up to 24 hours.
