Peachy Chicken Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This peachy chicken recipe is easy, delicious, and a great twist on the original baked chicken recipe.

Delicious peachy chicken. I finally got to make this again tonight and I now remember why I loved it so much! A recipe that I spotted in a magazine before I was even a wife, peachy chicken has bought so much delectable joy to my belly these past few years. The combination of the peaches, the vinegar and spicy ginger and black pepper will have you feeling joy too. This meal is incredibly easy to make, and can be cooked in the oven, or the slow cooker. This can also be prepped ahead of time. You can combine all of the ingredients, place in a 9×13 casserole dish, cover, and bake off when you are ready. For the slow cooker method, place all of the items in a ziptop bag and just dump in the slow cooker. See the instructions below to learn how to make this dish in the slow cooker.

Peachy Chicken

This peachy chicken recipe is easy, delicious, and a great twist on the original baked chicken recipe.

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (or thighs, if you’re sassy like that)
2 peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
a heavy pinch of black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the chicken in an 8×8 or even a 9×13 casserole dish, and top with sliced peaches. Mix the brown sugar, ginger, and black pepper in a small bowl.
Top the peaches and chicken with the mixture evenly and drizzle the apple cider vinegar over the brown sugar mixture.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until the juices in the chicken run clear.

Slow cooker instructions: Same steps as above but add 1/4th cup water to the pot to prevent the chicken from scorching. Place on low for 8 hours, or on high for 5 to 6 hours.

    This was great! My DH loved it b/c he loves white meat. My only thing is that I like juicier meat so I need to find a way to make the sauce a little bit more in bulk so I can enjoy it more, but GREAT recipe. I’m making it again this weekend!

    A quote from my darling husband. “You tell Dhunny that Peachy chicken is GOOD and I don’t even like chicken!”

    I have good news and bad news about my attempt with the peachy chicken. Turns out that hubby doesn’t like peaches. In fact he had never even had them before last night. But he did scrap them off and just eat the chicken. He did like the way the chicken turned out. I loved it. So nice and sweet, when you make chicken as much as I do something different is always a good thing.

    Hubby has asked that instead of peaches next time that I use apples. As much as it didn’t work out like I wanted I declare this a success. You found a way to get my hyper carnivore hubby to eat more fruit.

    Where’s MY pic that Grocery Boy took or the peach chicken? Yeah, he had to take it twice, but me kept my part of the bargain. Me made it, and GB took the pics with his *Gulp* $600 camera, and then uploaded it on da Pound.
    You came to da Pound and drooled over it and said YOU wanted to switch out MY pic with your pic on 4 Hats… well, me’s waitin’…
    (Some people! Say what you mean, and mean what you say, lady!)
    Alrighty then, back to gettin’ like $20.00 back in rebates from TerraChips (Yeah, they’re natural but NOT organic…Wanna fight about it? Um, scratch that! Me forgot you’rean American hero–military lady and all that.
    Jeez, me doubts YOU will even post this message. The only thing that might get me to squeek thru you as the military censor is me is Sonny Boy’s Auntie Jmo. Puh-leeze, just don’t have me teach that ‘dorable little guy gramma’!

    Served this last night – gives a new, very nice, “out of the ordinary” taste to the chicken. I would like the sauce to be thicker and stick to the meat (ala gravy) Has anyone tried adding corn starch or other thickener? I did the oven method and 30 minutes baking time was right-on.
    Always enjoy you blog.

      I used more peaches and mixed it altogether ( I cube my chicken) and I add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. It turned out great

    I dont think anyone tried the corn starch but a lot of the ladies did add more peaches than what the recipe states and I definitely recommend that.
