Just Peachy Chicken
Peaches have been on sale lately, and I just had to figure out a way to use them before they go bad. This is also a great way to use up peaches that have gone too ripe, or have a lot of bruises. The brown sugar, raisins and peaches impart a nice flavor without making the meat sweet.
3 lbs chicken breast or leg quarters with the skin removed and the visible fat cut off
4 ripe peaches, cut up (peeling is optional)
1/3 cup packed sulfite-free raisins
1 tsp ground ginger
1 T packed brown sugar
3 T oil
Place chicken in the bottom of a greased casserole dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix peaches, raisins, ginger and oil in medium mixing bowl and pour over chicken. Cover chicken and bake at 400° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake another 30 minutes or until no longer pink in the center.
