BBQ Chicken with a Fresh Peach Salsa

Beyond being incredibly gorgeous, this dish in also incredibly delicious.  There is just the right amount of sweetness from the fruits and spice from the sauce to balance it all out.  And once you add in the wonderful roasted flavor of the almonds, and you have some extraordinary chicken.  This is definitely not your average boring chicken dinner.  This is a chicken dinner that you and your family will love.

4 individually frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used Sun Chef-they're the best)
1cup of BBQ sauce (divided-I used Kraft Original for this-it's spicy and sweet)
sea salt/ fresh cracked pepper
2 small ripe peaches (peeled and diced)
1 cup of fresh blueberries (rinsed)
1/4 cup of roasted almonds (roughly chopped)
fresh or dried parsley for garnish

-Preheat grill to a medium-high flame.  Generously salt and pepper both sides of the chicken; toss on grill and go 10-15 minutes on each side.  Right before they are done on the last side, brush the BBQ sauce onto both sides and grill for a few more minutes.  Meanwhile, for the salsa, mix together the peaches, blueberries, almonds and 1 T. of the BBQ sauce; let sit for a few minutes to meld the flavors.  Once the chicken is done, plate it and top with heaps of the fresh peach salsa and a sprinkle of parsley.  Serves 4.  Enjoy!
