BBQ Chicken with Peach and Feta Slaw

This summery crunch-tastic slaw is guaranteed to find its way into your recipe rotation for the rest of the season. Using ripe, juicy peaches, it’s the perfect sweet-salty side dish for any number of grilled or smoked proteins.


  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • ⅜ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1-½ cups sliced fresh peaches (about 2 medium)
  • 1 (12 oz) pkg. broccoli slaw
  • 3 (6 oz) skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut crosswise into 1-in. strips
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 oz feta cheese, crumbled (about ¼ cup)
  • 2 center-cut bacon slices, cooked and crumbled


  1. Combine 4 tablespoons oil, vinegar, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add peaches and slaw to vinegar mixture; toss gently to coat.
  2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes or until done. Place chicken in a large bowl. Add barbecue sauce to bowl; toss.
  3. Divide slaw mixture evenly among 4 plates; top evenly with chicken strips. Sprinkle with chives, feta, and bacon.
