1 cup chopped fresh peaches
1 cup chopped fresh mango
½ cup chopped red bell pepper
¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
Juice of 1 lime
¼ cup fresh basil leaves, torn
Sea salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Alder Plank, soaked
Lime wedges for serving


Soak Alder Plank for one hour. Combine peaches, mango, pepper, onion and lime juice in a bowl; set aside.

Set the EGG for direct cooking at 325°F/163°C.

Rub the chicken with olive oil and season with sea salt. Place soaked plank on the grid close the dome and heat for 1 minutes. Flip the plank, and place the chicken on the heated side. Grill approximately 20 minutes or until chicken is done (165ºF/74°C).

Remove chicken and plank from the EGG and squeeze lime over the chicken. Stir the torn basil into the salsa and serve over the chicken.
