Curried Chicken with Peaches Recipe

Curried Chicken with Peaches Recipe

I'm always looking for recipes I can prepare ahead of time. The chicken chunks bask for hours in snappy spices and seasonings, giving this recipe a lot of pizzazz...and the peaches round out the amazing flavors. —Heidi Martinez Colorado Springs, Colorado
