Chicken With Spiced Peaches

I really like combining sweet and savory flavors in the dishes I make. I also like using fruit in our dinner in interesting ways, and this recipe for Chicken With Spiced Peaches does just that.

It is very quick and easy. You can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes! And not just an ordinary dinner, but one that is kinda fancy. I serve this dish with a wild rice quinoa blend made by Minute Rice (that cooks in 10 minutes) and steamed veggies. I was not paid by Minute Rice to include the link, I am just giving you suggestions on what to serve this with, and showing you what we eat.

Because this dish uses canned peaches you can make it using ingredients that are in the pantry, this makes it a good dish to have towards the end of your grocery shopping cycle. I plan on making the meals that use fresh produce and fruit the days right after I go grocery shopping and then I make the dishes that use mostly ingredients from the pantry the days preceding my shopping trips, so I can shop less often.

This is the marmalade mixture, I just mix it in the measuring cup to cut down on dirty dishes.
