" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

Peachy Keen

If you have been to any type of market lately you will know that peaches are in full season right now.
This extremely versatile fruit can be used for canning, baking and incorporated into main dishes.
I have been  coming across a lot of recipes for Peach Chicken in magazines and newspapers.
I have tried a few and  haven't been too impressed with the end result. 
So I played around and came up with my own version and I think it is the best one I have tried so far.
Plan ahead for about an hour of marinating time for the flavors to really blend together.
This company worthy dish would go well with couscous or wild rice.

Perfect Peach Chicken 
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 or 4 sliced peaches  
  •  1 cup of orange or mango blend juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp butter  
Divide the juice, syrup and cinnamon between two zip lock bags.
Place the chicken in one and the peaches in the other.
Marinate in the fridge for about one hour.
Remove chicken breasts and discard marinade. 
Grill on th barbecue until springy to touch and golden brown.
Pour the all the contents of the bag with the peaches into a sauce pan and heat to medium.
Add the butter and simmer stirring until liquid begins to thicken.
Serve over grilled chicken breasts.

Wine Suggestion: Riesling
