  • 1 large peach, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Mix first six ingredients. In a small saucepan, bring broth and 1/4 cup peach mixture to a boil. Stir in rice; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat; brown chicken on both sides. Add remaining peach mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, 7-9 minutes. Serve with rice.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
