  • Summary

    In Epi's 3-Ingredient Recipes series, we show you how to make great food with just three ingredients (plus staples like oil, salt, and pepper). Find a great prepared pesto and you can have dinner in no time! In this easy grilled dinner, the pesto works as both a simple marinade for the chicken and a finishing sauce. Grilling the peaches caramelizes their natural sugars and adds a smoky flavor to the stone fruit, turning them into a delicious side.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups store-bought or homemade pesto, divided
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided, plus more for grill
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
    • 8 small bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 3 pounds)
    • 4 ripe peaches, halved
