Recipe from Texas chef Dean Fearing of Mansion on the Turtlecreek. He recommends serving it with a barbeque rubbed chicken breast. It is also terrific poured over a block of cream cheese and served with crackers for an easy appetizer.

I thought this was a great recipe. Nice refreshing contrast between sweet & spicy, but might add an extra jalapeno next time. DH wasn't crazy about it, too much cinnamon for his tastes but DS totally LOVED it. I think less cinnamon & more jalapeno & we'd all love it equally. I'm really glad I stumbled on this recipe (had peaches that needed to be used up), we'll be making it again. Served today for a quick lunch of grilled chicken & white rice. Thanks for posting, Susie!

If you like me love the distinct marriage of sweet and spicy paired together in a strangle, complex but wonderful combination, then you will love this one. Used farm fresh white peaches and gave them a quick blanching to make it easier to remove the skins. My one change to the recipe was to add z-Sweet a natural sugar replacement after the chutney was cooked. What I loved about this was the pure freshness of the fruit that you so often don't get in chutney and that it is so low in added sugar. Perfect for this chef and the WW Core program.

Excellent! I should have doubled the recipe to begin with; my boyfriend took all of it home with him! Will make more of it this week. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
