A friend made this saucy chicken for us when we had our first child. I pared down the recipe to make it lower in fat and calories. Now it's a family favorite, and even the kids ask for it. —Marge Wagner, Roselle, Illinois
"on a lazy sunny summer day, this chicken is the best ever," writes Agnes Gollan of Garfield Heights, Ohio. "We enjoy it with baked beans and watermelon." Try the zesty barbecue sauce on other grilled meats, too.

Barbecue sauce and peach preserves bring the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors to this tender dish from Laura Mahaffey of Annapolis, Maryland. It's a great meal if you have extra green peppers to use up.
