Peachy Chicken

Submitted by: APRILDAWN678

Introduction

A recipe my mom passed on to me, not sure where it came from, but it is yummy! Goes well over rice, and makes great leftovers-- was moister the next day.

    I loved this recipe and so did my whole family! This is one I will definitely make again. It wasn't too sweet, and the chicken was so moist. - 2/2/09

    I've made this twice now and really enjoyed it. The kids loved it which is a huge plus. I wonder if anyone has tried making it in the crockpot instead of the hot oven. BTW, I shredded the chicken and let it really soak up the cooking sauce before serving over rice. Yum. - 8/29/08

    That's a good idea about trying it in the crock pot. I don't see why it wouldn't work. Let me know if you try it!

    I've seen this recipe, too... not sure where it came from either, but I'm glad you posted it! I made it over a year ago, but lost the recipe. It is very moist, and has an awesome flavor! I leave out the nutmeg, though... First time I made it, it seemed overpowering. Thanks for posting this! - 8/2/08

    It's sorta like an old fashioned Southern recipe I've had in a restaurant before, unexpectedly good. I put it over Quinoa that I had in the cabinet. - 2/7/09

    I have to admit that I had my doubts about this one. However, I decided to give it a try. I was quite pleasantly surprised. It was tasty, moise, and flavorful. I even enjoyed eating the baked peach halves. - 2/2/09

    Hi I used to do this one from a Canadian cookbook in the 70s. Bet your Mom is my age. Enjoy it while you can. It was one of my favorites until I couldn't make all the substitutions I would need to. - 1/14/09

    I did this in the crock pot and it was a big hit. Six hours on low. Next time I will follow the recipe exactly but last night I left out the basil and nutmeg and added a mix of chopped peppers and onions. Really fantastic! - 12/21/08

    This was very good! I used peach slices because I didn't have peach havles on hand. I also added a little cinnamon to the orange juice/vinger/brown sugar mix. It really came out nice! Another one for the keep pile! - 8/18/08

    I added a bit of jalepeno to make it spicy..almost like a chicken with peach salsa flavor. It was great! - 8/16/08

    Oh wow, I loved this! It was super easy and the chicken was perfectly cooked. I made it as-is and did not think the nutmeg was overpowering. I also poured in the syrup from the peaches can. We ate this over brown rice. I will make again and again! - 8/11/08

  • Yummy & looks pretty -was very good over rice. My 2 & 3 1/2 year old daughters only ate the peaches - I think the basil & nutmeg might have been too strong for them. This will be an "every once in a while" meal b/c of the prep time. Thanks for a new yummy & healthy recipe! - 3/16/09

  • Great recipe! My husband said it tasted Asian, and only then did I realize it's pretty much an orange chicken, with some peaches thrown in for good measure. Love it! - 3/9/09

    I am wondering if I could substitute raw, fresh peaches for the canned? I am not a big fan of processed foods and try to avoid using them in recipes whener possible. Has anyone tried this method? - 8/13/08
