4 tbsp.balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp.peach preserves
1 tbsp.
Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp.cayenne pepper
4 tbsp.extra-virgin olive oil, divided
4ripe peaches, pitted and quartered

Season chicken on both sides with salt and black pepper. In a large bowl, combine lemon juice, vinegar, peach preserves, mustard, cayenne, and 3 tablespoons oil. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate at room temperature at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat; preheat 5 minutes. Grill chicken, turning halfway through, until charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 165°, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.

Reduce grill to medium heat. Brush cut sides of peaches with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Grill until charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Arrange peaches around chicken. Top with basil.
