Curried Chicken with Peaches

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

    So I am making this recipe for the first time today and was hoping for some inspiration for a good side to go with it.

    Delicious!! I put it in the oven instead of the crockpot at 350 for about 90 minutes. It came out great. Next time I will add one more Tlbs of cornstarch as I thought the sauce could be thicker. Family loved it. I plan to make it again.

    so this is a very good starter recipe if you're new to Indian-like cooking :) being half East Indian, i know better, so i ONLY use FRESH ginger, lots and lots of garlic, REAL Indian curry (NOT McCormick!) and use MANGO in place of the peaches :) sometimes i still use the peaches, but i ALWAYS add some fresh mango slices to it about an hour before we eat. Also, use golden raisins for a more authentic flavor :) Trust me! This is sooo good if you do it right. But even if you just follow this recipe, it's still very yummy... just suited for tastes this side of the ocean :P Oh, and if you DO use Indian curry, be wary, it's powerful and if you're not used to it, your insides may be mad at you...

    Very bland and curry/peach combo was odd.

    Curried chicken with peaches is so good, my family makes it whenever we have all the ingredients. It's a keeper and one my youngest son makes any time he can, as he's an awesome cook and very good at making these recipes.

    Loved this recipe--I cut down on prep time by using frozen chicken breasts instead of cutting up the chicken and served it over a box mix of Mediterranean-flavored couscous, which cooks up in 5 minutes while the peaches are heating up at the end. Yummy!!
