- For the Marinade:
- 1 cup (240ml) dry white wine
- Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons; 30ml)
- 2 teaspoons (10ml) low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
- 1 small shallot, minced
- 2 tablespoons (30ml) extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (use more or less depending on their intensity and your heat tolerance)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
- For the Skewers:
- 1 1/2 pounds (680g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 large semifirm peaches, halved, pitted, and cut into 1-inch chunks
- 6 ounces (170g) thinly sliced prosciutto
- 12 sage leaves, or more as desired
For the Marinade: In a large bowl, combine wine, lemon juice, soy sauce, chopped sage, and shallot. Whisk in olive oil and red pepper flakes, then season with salt.
For the Skewers: Add chicken and peach cubes to bowl of marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours.
Light 1 chimney full of charcoal. When all charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread coals evenly over half of coal grate. Alternatively, set half the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill, and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil grilling grate.
Meanwhile, working with one slice at a time, place prosciutto slices on a flat surface and lay 1 to 2 sage leaves on top of each. Fold prosciutto slices in half lengthwise so that sage is sandwiched inside.
Remove chicken and peaches from marinade and reserve marinade. Using a skewer, pierce one end of sage-stuffed prosciutto. Place a piece of chicken right where the skewer pierced the prosciutto and slide skewer through the chicken as well, then slide skewer through prosciutto again, on the other side of the chicken. Next, slide a peach cube onto skewer, then weave prosciutto and pierce once more on the far side of the peach cube. Repeat, alternating chicken and peach chunks, with prosciutto snaking back and forth around them along the length of the skewer. Repeat until all 6 skewers are assembled.
Pour marinade into a small saucepan and cook over high heat. Bring to a full, rolling boil for 2 minutes, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, whisking occasionally, until reduced and thickened to a sauce-like consistency. Set aside.
Grill skewers over high heat until prosciutto crisps and chicken has cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. If skewers threaten to burn, move them to the cooler side of the grill to finish cooking. Serve skewers warm with the dipping sauce made from the marinade.

Sweet Plantain hash & eggs – A delicious skillet breakfast Casserole that is brimming with flavor and packed full of protein! Beans and eggs. Make it for lunch and dinner too! Great Anytime.
You know what? I just can’t get out of my breakfast rut. I can count how many meals I make just using ONE hand alone.
Um.. Embarrassing, especially for a person who’s always cooking.
Believe me, I have tried and it’s hard to get out of a routine when you are press for time.
But tell you what; on the weekends it’s another ball game – I eagerly await-dreaming up new flavors to try out especially for breakfast.
It sets the tone for the rest of the weekend and keeps me in good spirits.
This here, is Hash plantain made with beans, bell pepper (might I add, abundantly available this time of the year) tomatoes and other spice mix, then top with eggs.
The best part about this incredibly flavorful, hearty and filling, nutritious, paleo breakfast and is that is topped with fried eggs. And it’s just visually appealing.
I enjoyed eating this plantain hash so much that I had it for lunch too! And then made another set for my brother to pick up.And he totally fell in love with it.
You can crack as many eggs into the pan as you want and cook them until they are cooked to your taste. Or just fry the eggs and place on top of the hash either way works beautifully.
Serve with extra plantains or bread and avocado and or hot sauce
- With picking out plantains it is best to get plantains that are ripe, yellow with few black spots and firm, Not overly ripe (Dark skin) because it would end up too mushy. Unripe plantains are best when fried not suitable here.
- Replace plantains with sweet potatoes if plantains not available
- Omit the Eggs and make it completely Vegan
