Sweet peaches and tart green tomatoes gain depth from a bit of char on the grill, a simple yet surprisingly delicious side for grilled chicken thighs. Look for peaches that are still slightly firm; these will hold up better on the grill. If you can’t find green tomatoes, you can substitute slightly firm red tomatoes, though you may want to add a splash of balsamic or white wine vinegar for a touch more tang. For a pop of green, try sprinkling chopped parsley, dill, or basil over each serving. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to high (450°F to 550°F).

Step 2

Bring 1 cup water and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high. Stir in couscous. Cover, remove pan from heat, and let stand 10 minutes. Uncover pan; fluff with a fork.

Step 3

Coat chicken thighs with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Coat tomato and peach slices with cooking spray. Add chicken to grill; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Add tomato and peach slices to grill; cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until just slightly tender.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon water, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and sour cream in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 5

Cut peach slices into wedges. Place 1/2 cup couscous and 1 chicken thigh on each of 4 plates; top evenly with peaches and tomatoes. Drizzle each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
