    Heat grill. In medium bowl, combine peaches, lime juice and brown sugar; mix well. Stir in bell pepper, green onions, chile pepper and dash of salt.

    Place 1 chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast halves.

    When ready to grill, oil grill rack. Lightly sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place chicken on oiled rack on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 6 to 10 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once. Serve with salsa.

Expert Tips

  • To broil, place chicken on broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times provided above as a guide.
  • Salsa is the Mexican word for "sauce." The sauces--either fresh or cooked--may consist of chopped vegetables, fruits or both, and seasonings that lend a hot, mild, sweet or tart taste. One ingredient is common to most salsas: chiles.
  • Use nectarines or plums in place of the peaches.
