Recipe of the Week: Balsamic Peach Chicken
This is a great dish for summer when peaches are in season and you’re looking for a light, fun meal! This goes great with a side of asparagus lightly grilled with olive oil and sea salt and/or over quinoa to soak up the sweetness of the peaches and add an extra protein boost!
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced (about 3/4 cup)
4 (5 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp honey
2 cups sliced firm but ripe peaches (about 2 medium)
1 (14.5) oz can diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup thinly sliced basil ribbons
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute 3 minutes. Add chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper and cook about 2 minutes each side. Remove chicken from pan and transfer to a plate. Add garlic to pan and saute 20 seconds then add balsamic vinegar and stir until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Stir in honey then add in peaches and tomatoes. Return chicken to pan and cover reducing heat to medium-low and allow to simmer until chicken has cooked through. Top with fresh basil and serve warm.
