This balsamic peach chicken is a little sweet, a little tangy, and a whole lot of good! Serve over traditional rice or cauliflower rice for an easy dinner that everyone will love.
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
- 2 lbs chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 4 cups peaches, diced, about 4 large peaches or 5 medium peaches
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
Heat oil in a large skillet (I use my 12″) over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté, flipping occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken has some browning. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Add diced peaches, water, balsamic vinegar, honey, and minced garlic. Simmer on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until peaches are tender. You should see quite a bit of bubbling as it cooks.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add chicken back to the skillet and stir in fresh basil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until warmed through. Taste. Add more salt or honey to taste.
