The recipe selection sounds nice and Summery. Doesn’t it? I started my blog 1 week ago and thanks to you guys I have had almost 1000 hits! I know some blogs get that in an hour, but I am happy with it! Alot of you joined me from IHeartPublix.com. Michelle was gracious enough to share you with me. She was also gracious enough to share this recipe. I have to admit. I would have never in a million years thought that peaches and chicken go together. You need to trust the skeptic. It is really good!

• 2 spray(s) cooking spray
• 10 oz boneless, skinless chicken thigh(s) and/or drums (about 4-5 pieces)
• 1/4 tsp table salt
• 1/4 tsp black pepper
• 6 small peaches, sliced (peeled) *you could use plums instead*
• 1 tbsp ginger root, freshly grated
• 1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
• 1/4 cup(s) canned chicken broth
• 1/4 can(s) frozen apple juice concentrate (undiluted), thawed,
*for sale purposes, you could use one Apple and Eve Juice box* **see matchup at end of post** ————————————————
• Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, add to skillet in a single layer and brown chicken 4 minutes per side; remove chicken and set aside.
• Remove skillet from heat and recoat with cooking spray. Warm skillet again and add peaches, ginger and garlic; sauté until peaches lose their firmness, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add chicken broth and scrape up browned bits of food on bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon; add apple juice concentrate and stir.
• Return chicken to skillet, cover and simmer until chicken is completely cooked through, about 5 minutes
In the Photos I enlarged the recipe a little. I had to feed 6. My grandma is staying with us for a few days. I just served it over white rice with a salad. The dish has almost an Asian kind of taste to it. The sauce is sweet from the peaches, with a hint of the ginger. Let me tell you the plates were empty!
Oh, also, Michelle’s recipe specifically says to “peel peaches.” I had too many chefs in the kitchen and a little one trying to feed the dog Cheez Its. Needless to say, I missed that part. The chicken still turned out really good. SO, the moral of the story is, if you forget to peel the peaches, it won’t be the end of the world!
She shared this Blueberry cobbler recipe with me. When she emailed it she explained that she only made a half of one because it was plenty for her family. If she made a whole one, well, it would get eaten anyway. We all know those kinds of desserts! Do yourself the favor! Make the whole one!
