Peach Glazed Grilled Chicken Cutlets with Watermelon Salad


After recently winning the Kosher Chopped Cooking Competition, Rare Steakhouse & Extreme Catering of Miami Beach Executive Chef Arthur Jones shared this succulent summery dish with me. I was immediately transported into summer mode. Summer and grilling are always synonymous in my home… and a refreshing watermelon salad too? What more can one ask for?


Prepare Watermelon Salad

1. Whisk lime juice, olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt, and cilantro in a large bowl.
2. Cut watermelon into rectangular pieces.
3. Mince shallot and add both to vinaigrette.
4. Toss until completely coated, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5. Stir well before serving.

Prepare Chicken

1. Combine peach preserves, olive oil, teriyaki glaze or sauce, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
2. Preheat grill and brush both the grill and the chicken cutlets with olive oil (or spray the grill with cooking spray).
3. Season chicken by sprinkling with additional salt and pepper.
4. Place chicken on grill, skin-side down, and cook until golden brown, about six to seven minutes.
5. Turn and brush with peach glaze.
6. Keep turning and basting for five more minutes.
7. Remove to a platter and allow to rest.
8. Arrange the marinated Watermelon Salad alongside the Peach-Glazed Chicken Cutlet on a rustic-looking picnic plate, and garnish with fresh mint, cilantro, and basil leaves.

Notes: This recipe works beautifully with regular or dark chicken cutlets.
