Chicken with Spicy Peach Sauce

Recently I've had a really hard time eating chicken breast unless its cut into pieces. I'm not sure why but something about a whole chicken breast is just not appealing to me. I wanted to see if I could overcome that so I came up with this recipe.

Ingredients:
    • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 3 ripe peaches
    • 1/4 cup peach preserves
    • 1/4 cup onion, minced
    • 2-3 tbs. sugar
    • 1 tbsp. hot mango chutney
    • 1 tbsp. honey
    • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Directions:
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with cold water and add ice cubes.
2. Score an X into the bottom of each peach. Remove any stems.
3. Lower each peach into the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes, make sure all sides of the peach are under water.
4. Scoop out the peaches with a slotted spoon and transfer to the ice bath. Let cool for 2-3 minutes or until you're able to handle them.
5. Peel off the skin of each peach and cut it into bite sized pieces.
6. In a small saucepan, combine the peaches and following ingredients over low heat. Start with 1 tbs. of sugar and adjust as necessary as the sauce cooks down.
7. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This may be done 2-3 days in advance and refrigerated. Sauce may also be mashed or pureed if desired.
8. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
9. In a large skillet over high heat, brown the chicken on all sides. Transfer the chicken to the baking sheet and continue cooking in the oven for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken breast. 
10. Plate the chicken and spoon the spicy peach sauce on top.

Tom said that this was too sweet for him which surprised me because I thought the flavor of the apple cider vinegar would still come through and he doesn't like vinegar in any form. I did enjoy this and I think I'll make it again in August when there are tons and tons of ripe peaches!
