Grilled Peach Habanero Chicken Wings

We are finally experiencing the dog days of summer around the Northwest. It's been a beautiful weekend with blue skies and highs in the low 80's. Pretty much perfect I suppose.

We've done a lot of just lazing around, although we did plant this beautiful rose in my rose garden that we found at the Proctor Farmer's Market. It's a fragrant and lovely chocolate rose.

But mostly we've been trying to work on the beginnings of training our pup. Not so easy with this stubborn girl.

And even more we've just been sitting around playing with and watching her.

But we do still have to eat. And finally local peaches are in season. I know those of you non-Northwesterners probably have had your peach season over and gone by now. But things are just a little slower around her due to our lack of hot weather.

We picked up some Pence Farm peaches at our local Metropolitan Market's Peach-O-Rama and thought making some grilled peach-habanero chicken wings was sounding pretty good for our lunch outside with our Sally Pork Chop puppy. I prepped the wings while G played with our pup.

While they grilled I made a spicy peach habanero sauce made from peach habanero salsa that we had made last summer and some sriracha to coat them in after they were fully grilled.

Going with the peach theme we sliced up one of our Pence Peaches and decided to serve them with the wings instead of the traditional celery sticks.

Once off the grill I coated and tossed them in the sauce.

They hit the spot.

Sweet and a bit spicy of course. But super tasty in the sun with a slice of peach to cool down the heat of the sauce.

Just the perfect summer lazy day lunch enjoyed in the backyard with our pup.
