Cheese Stuffed Grilled Chicken with Cilantro Peach Sauce and Bacon Wrapped Peaches

THAT was a mouthful.
Creamy Cilantro Cheese Stuffed Chicken But how else could I name it?

This dish is summery, bright, fresh and hearty all at the same time. The best of both worlds, if you will.

My favorite part is the cilantro sauce; I could drink it. It’s cilantro, sour cream, fresh peaches, a little lemon juice and a bit of Worcestershire. It’s off the chain.

And these bacon wrapped peaches…
Bacon Wrapped Peaches I stuffed the chicken with Cabot’s Vermont Extra Sharp Cracker Cuts. It ended up being so perfect for this because it’s a sturdy cheese that doesn’t ooze out during grilling.
You don’t need a salad, or bread or anything else with this.
