Recipe by Steph_40135
From Ontario Chicken Lover (Wing Magazine). The picture looked so scrumptious I had to try it. If you think it is strange, or you won't like this (as I thought) I would recommend trying this anyway. My girls gobbled it up, and my husband loved it as well. We served it with white rice.

This is great! Thanks so much for posting this recipe. My (picky) 3 year old son told me he wanted "chicken and peaches" for dinner so I searched Zaar and made your dish with chicken thighs. We both loved it. The chicken was so tender and the peaches a great idea! My son asked me when I could make this again for him. Very SOON! My advice to folks: don't skip the vinegar (we used Apple Cider vinegar), it really adds to the flavor! Served it with herb & garlic boxed rice pilaf. Now I've mixed it all up and can't wait to have the leftovers.
