"This recipe was staring me in the face for days. Finally I made it everyone loved it, including my two picky 4 and 7 year old girls. I loved that all the ingredients I found at our local farmers market which made it so much sweeter with the flavor."

"I kept looking at this recipe for days, finally I tried it. My family including 2 picky kids age 4 and loved it. They kept asking for more. I loved the salsa and the peach preserves on it. I didn't expect that I would make me like peaches more. Best part I went out to a farmers market and got so many dish ideas that week off this one dish."

"Yum! My family loved this salsa, and on top of the chicken it was delicious. Our perfectly ripe Georgia peaches were key. We'll definitely make this again."
