To make the peach BBQ sauce:

  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in peaches and cook for 5 minutes. Add ketchup, apple cider vinegar, sweetener, Worcestershire sauce, salt and garlic powder and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, until peaches break down and sauce begins to thicken, about 10-15 minutes. Carefully transfer peach mixture to blender and blend until smooth, about 1 minute.

To make the chicken:

  1. Heat grill to medium and brush grates with oil. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Grill chicken, flipping occasionally and brushing with peach BBQ sauce, until fully cooked and a meat thermometer reaches 165°F, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer to plate and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

To make the salad:

  1. Grill peach halves, cut-side down, until char marks appear, about 1-2 minutes. Slice peach halves into ½-inch thick slices.
  2. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, sweetener, salt and pepper together in large bowl until combined. Add grilled peach slices, arugula and red onion and toss to coat. Serve grilled chicken with salad and enjoy.
