I first tried this delicious dish at my sister's house and was delighted when she shared the recipe with me. Peaches give ordinary chicken a sweet taste and pretty golden color.

"I didn't broil the chicken, I just threw the sauce on it and baked it for the suggested time. It was so tender and had great flavor. Delicious!"

"This recipe was really good and easy to make. Very appealing looking dish. I used probably 1/4 cup of red onion very finely minced. The only thing I would do to change this dish is to use some of the peach sauce or puree a peach to give the chicken a more peachy flavour."
