Gingery Chicken with Peaches

Hello there!!! It has been FAR too long and I apologize.  Such a busy spring with my new job, a looooooonnnggg and much needed trip home and most recently my cousin moving to Denver so I have had little to no time (or money for that matter) to try out new recipes.

I have had this one in mind for months now but the beginning of summer seems like the perfect time for the savory and sweet deliciousness!!! The dish combines many Asian flavors with soy sauce and ginger with the sweetness of brown sugar and peaches to make this yummy, yummy, yummy (and so EASY) meal for the whole family.

Thanks to the blog Iowa Girl Eats for this recipe.  

Gingery Chicken with Peaches

1 bag (1lb) frozen peaches, unthawed
1 red onion, halved and sliced ¼” inch thick
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh ginger micro planed or finely minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoon sesame oil
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
cooked brown or white rice
1lb chicken breasts
salt & pepper
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, micro planed or finely minced
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Season chicken breasts with salt & pepper. Combine ingredients for marinade in a large zip lock bag. Add chicken and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place frozen peaches and onions in a large bowl then add ginger, soy sauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and red-pepper flakes, and toss to coat. Pour into a non-stick sprayed 9×13 casserole dish. Nestle marinated chicken into the peaches and onions, and roast until chicken is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.

Served this meal to my cousin James and his girlfriend Becky during their first week in Denver! Can't wait for many more meals to come. :)
Good eatin',
