    TO make healthier and decr calories...use peaches in light syrup, skinless chicken breast, and cook in skillet w/ either pam spray or chicken broth rather than frying in oil! - 12/28/10

    I used the peaches in light syrup as suggested in another review and used 2 chicken breasts. It made alot of sauce so next time I think I will use a smaller can of peaches and 1/2 the sauce amount. other then that it was very tasty and my picky 5 year old liked it too! - 1/17/11
