Peachy Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

When my mother was pregnant with me, one of the only things she could eat was home-canned peaches. To this day, I love, love recipes with peaches. This dish is so delicious and fills the house with such wonderful aromas, you'll hardly be able to wait to make it.—Sandra Bonow, Lewiston, Minnesota
