We didn't care for this. I thought it was somewhat bitter, although I don't know why.
We got a few peaches from one of my husband's friends, and I thought I'd try this out. I kind of have mixed feelings on this dish... I read all the reviews and followed the recipe exactly, except that I doubled the flour mixture (glad I did!), and I also used 1/3 the amount of dried basil. I liked the ingredients all separately and the sauce was good, but all together it was - different, for sure! The basil reminded me of Italian food, the peaches reminded me of light, summery food (not Italian), and the onions were good, but odd to see in the sauce with the peaches. I would make it again, but probably for myself, and not for company. I think my husband would prefer it wasn't made again. So, the review is probably 4 stars for me and 2 from my hubby. On a side note, a super easy way to peel peaches is to put them in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, take them out with a slotted spoon, wait until they are cool enough to handle and the peel comes right off. It's so cool!
Very unusual recipe, but my DH and I loved it. We used canned peaches that I was trying to use up, which tasted just fine. Definitely follow the directions and only turn the chicken once, it keeps the chicken so moist.
The sauce was quite good, but I think I'll grill the chicken next time. The texture seemed odd paired with the sauce, for some reason. I also had to make more flour mixture- I'd run out of it by the time I got to the third breast.
Mmmm, fabulous! I used fresh peaches and dried basil. I was out of lemon juice, but didn't notice anything missing. I thought it would be sweeter too, and after tasting the sauce, I wondered if I should add some brown sugar, but when I tasted the sauce with the chicken, I realized it didn't need it. Yum!
It so-so. I was hoping it would be sweeter, so I served it with rice and added some brown sugar. That helped it alot. Of course, maybe using canned peaches had an effect on it, too. All in all, it was good and my husband and I ate it all.
yummy yummy yummy!! is all I can say!! It's *sooo* good! Initially, I thought it was gonna be weird, because the combination sounded wacky, but then I went ahead and tried it anywayz after reading the reviews, and was *very*pleasantly* surprised!
You should definitely try this recipe. I used bone-in chicken pieces and cooked it covered on the stove. I did not have chicken stock, so I used vegetable stock. Otherwise, everything else was the same. The chicken came out very moist and my picky eaters even complimented the chef!
