  • Rub chicken breast with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Turn barbecue on high, allowing to heat for 10 minutes.
  • Cut peach, separating each half, and rub with olive oil.
  • Once barbecue has heated, turn to medium heat, placing peaches, chicken, and prosciutto on grill.
  • Cook prosciutto for about a minute until crispy, then remove.
  • Cook peaches until they are lightly charred, and have grill marks, about 10 minutes, and remove.
  • Cook chicken until it reach 165F, about 15-20 minutes.
  • While peaches and chicken are cooking, roast your walnuts in a pan on medium heat.
  • Once walnuts start to become toasted, sprinkle with a generous pinch or two of brown sugar, a generous pinch of salt, and if you have leftover drippings from cutting the peach, add that to the pan. If not, just add a splash of water, allowing the brown sugar to caramelize into a sauce.
  • Once walnuts are coated with the caramelized sugars, allow it to brown lightly before removing from the heat.
  • Once chicken is finished cooking, remove from the grill and allow to rest at least ten minutes.
  • While chicken is resting, place a large handful of arugula on each plate, drizzle about a tablespoon of the vinaigrette over it, followed by crumbling a piece of prosciutto and some goat cheese on the salad. Finish with chopped candied walnuts, a grilled peach, and sliced chicken breast.
