This recipe was awsome, everyone loved it, I used can peaches since they are out of season and it turned out great.

This was a good dish, but the suggestion of making the sauce didn't work at all. I used pineapple in place of the fresh peaches, and it turned out well. Next time, I'll add coconut, for an even more flavorful outcome.

Don't let some of the reviews scare you away from trying this wonderful recipe! I almost didn't make this because of many reviews complaining about "the sweetness". I'm glad I did! I started by seasoning my chicken breasts with some white wine vinegar and lemon juice. I used the vinegar to offset the sweetness "problem". I then sprinkled black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder over the breasts. I pretty much followed the rest of the recipe as written. I used a fresh peach(with white flesh though) and used a "light" brown sugar to save calories. For the sauce, I used a combo of half cold water/half chilled white wine(Pinot Grigio) mixed with the corn starch. I sprinkled a bit of fresh parsley leaves over it all too. The end result was just fantastic, and even my boyfriend said he couldn't wait until I made this tasty dish again! And, the whole recipe was very quick and easy too. What more could I ask for? Try this, you'll love it! Thank you Lor for a delicious recipe!

The sauce in this recipe is one of the best I've ever tasted! I used pork chops instead of chicken, seasoned them with meat tenderizer, salt and pepper, and browned them before assembling and baking the rest of the dish. I bought a large can of peaches and only used about half the can with some of the juice. I wish I had used the whole can as the peaches were so yummy in this dish. At the end of the bake time I put it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown it nicely. The combination of the pork and the peaches and the "to die for peachy, clove-y, gingery" sauce made this an unforgettable dinner. It was also super easy. I made this for a casual meal at home with my family, but would definitely serve it for company, too. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

This recipe was delicious, but I would add one caution. I made it for a potluck dinner. I prepared it in the afternoon, sampled some for lunch to make sure I liked it (which I did) then placed the remainder in an attractive casserole dish to reheat in the microwave later for the dinner. While it smelled and tasted good, the chicken absorbed the brown sugar and turned a brownish shade. It was passed over by many people, but the ones that did try it said it was good. My recommendation: try it but prepare it then serve it immediately.

This was really good! Like having peach pie for your main course! A really different and unusual chicken recipe. I used half of the brown sugar called for and I think it was more than enough. And I didn't peel the peaches -- not necessary. I think you really need to make this with fresh peaches. Canned just wouldn't be the same.

This was absolutely delicious! The chicken was tender and juicy and I really enjoyed the peach flavour. Like many other reviewers, I used canned peaches with the juices. Be sure to use a large can, as the cooked peaches are so tasty! Also I did not have ground cloves, so I substituted a sprinkling of cinnamon and a genourous amount of freshly ground pepper for some spicy heat. This was a real treat, the recipe is a welcome addition to my "Favourites" category, and I'll definitely be serving this dish again soon!!

I made this as the recipe says only I added a dash of cinnamon. I also cut the chicken into small pieces. I added the water and cornstarch to make a sauce and served over rice. It was delicious. (Oh I also used canned peaches and marinated the chicken in the peach juice from the can for about 2 hours before I cooked it) *If you do not like sweet main dishes then you will probably not like this*
