I found this in the Bon Appetot Cookbook which has kid pleasing recipes. I haven't made it but it sounds interesting. I even like the name!

I was looking for a recipe to use up some peach juice & found this one. I like the fact it's different from the normal baked chicken recipes & had some good flavours. I cut the recipe in half & used 1 1/4 lb chicken breasts, it was plenty for 4 servings in our household. I used my 'instant' marinator and the chicken sucked up most of the juice (added water to the bottom of the pan so it didn't burn). I was short on cornflakes so I sub'd in some crushed bran/shredded wheat. Tasty recipe, thanks for sharing.

  1. In a bowl, mix peanut butter, melted butter and juice. To make it easier to mix with juice, peanut butter and butter may be put in microwave at low temperature to soften.
  2. Add chicken, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour, turning once.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix the cornflake crumbs, ginger, salt and pepper.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and reserve remaining marinade.
  5. Coat the chicken in the dry mixture and place on rack of a baking pan.
  6. Drizzle chicken with remaining marinade.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until chicken is done.
