*Cajun Peach BBQ Chicken*
2 lbs chicken leg quarters
1 can sliced peaches
4 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 cup barbeque sauce
Wash and dry leg quarters and set aside. ... Combine cajun seasoning, garlic powder and peaches in a bowl. Mash peaches with a fork so that they are "smashed" but still have texture. ... Rub chicken on both sides with olive oil. Lift the chicken skin, starting with the thigh to form a pocket. DO NOT remove the skin completely. Take a handful of the peach mixture and place it under the skin until areas are filled. ... Place chicken on aluminum foil on your grill and cook until done. Season with salt and pepper once removed from the grill. Baste with your favorite BBQ sauce if desired.
