Part of me is ready for pumpkin and squash. But with this 100+ degree heat wave it's really hard to get in the mood for fall!
There were still tons of peaches left at Trader Joes yesterday and this recipe looked (and was) so easy and perfect for the hot weather. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the ginger complemented it well without being overpowering. Oh and the peaches were, well, peachy.
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 fresh peach - peeled, pitted and sliced
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Place chicken in the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with 1/8 cup of brown sugar.
Place peach slices over chicken then sprinkle with remaining 1/8 cup brown sugar, ginger, cloves and lemon juice.
Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, basting often with juices, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
