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.
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.
