Peach Chicken

Peach Week (1024x681) (1024x681)

We are just plowing through Peach Week, huh?!

In case you missed the memo, my backyard peach tree was ready for picking so I had a TON of peaches to use up.  Thus, this week, filled with peachy recipes, has been dubbed “Peach Week!”

So far, we have covered breakfast with our Peaches’ N’ Cream Smoothie and our Peach Muffins.  Now we are moving on to the savory side of this delicious fruit.

I have to say, I am a big fan of the sweet/savory combo and I love adding fruit to other wise savory dishes.

Pineapple on Hawaiian pizza?  I’m there.

Orange chicken?  Totally.

Peach chicken?  You better believe it.

My sweet husband, on the other hand, is not a fan.  He liked the chicken part of this dish, but not the peach part.  I sort of had a hunch that he would feel this way going in, but I had to give it a try.    Oh, well!  Can’t win them all right?
