  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches in extra-light syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup peach preserves
  • 1 tablespoon white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Hot cooked pasta


  1. Drain peaches, reserving juice. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and reserved juice until smooth. Add preserves and wine; set aside.
  2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, melt remaining butter. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken and peaches; heat through. Sprinkle with onions; serve with pasta.

    I love sweet and savory together and this one is a hit. We have peach trees, so I used my home canned peaches and jam. sauce is great.

    My whole family like this dish. After reading a previous review I decided to add a few things...little soy sauce, fresh garlic, ginger, and onion powder. Yum! I also think it would be great spiced up with some jalapenos or red pepper flakes.

    This dish was excellent; I made it for my husband and he absolutely loved it. I did make a few alterations, though. With the peach/cornstarch mixture I added a dash of nutmeg and about a tsp or two of cinnamon. I also did not have any green onions on hand, but it turned out beautifully. The spices made such a difference in the flavor. I would make this dinner again.
