Instead of tomatoes for your next Caprese, try peaches for a different take on things. Perfect with creamy mozzarella and basil, this version layers flavorful char-grilled chicken that makes a perfect backyard meal in the summertime.

Serves 2

Prep time: 20 minutes

Make sure your peaches are ripe and unpeeled, and take your mozzarella out of the fridge before you start — it will have a much more mellow, creamy flavor at room temperature.

You may have to get your peaches a few days in advance. Many of the peaches you find at the store are not ripe yet!
