Byrdhouse Spicy Chicken and Peaches

Recipe by  

"This was a recipe of my mom's that I manipulated in true Byrdhouse form. Everyone loves this one, even the kids if you take it easy with the red pepper. I always serve this on broad, flat noodles."

  1. Bring peaches, garlic, orange juice, vinegar, sugar, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, and basil to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, season the chicken to taste with salt and pepper, then dust with flour and shake off the excess. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook until lightly brown on both sides, but still pink in the center.
  3. Season peach sauce with salt and pepper, and pour over browned chicken. Return the chicken to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes more until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.

I did a few things a little diffently though. I added the juice from the peaches and omitted the red pepper flakes, instead everyone in my family could spice to taste with a little cayenne pepper.

WOW!! i finally made it, and i am so glad i did! I made this last night, and my hubby made "rich mexican corn" and together, man it was a great dinner. SOOOOOO good. I loved the combo of heat and sweet. Didnt change a thing, cause i knew Sunny's recipe was perfect already. Cant wait to have this again!

Excellent! Not too spicy and the flavors are well balanced! Next time I'll try using fresh basil so I don't get the texture of the dried in each bite.

Not a bad dinner, liked the flavors of the chicken, but it definitely needed more spice. Try adding 1/2 Tbsp. Sriracha sauce, gives it the kick it needs.

Absolutely fantastic! I really enjoyed this dish. It was extremely flavorful; the spiciness and sweetness complimented eachother nicely without one overpowering the other. I followed the recipe as written and was very pleased with the result. Thanks Sunny! ♥

This recipe is a great way to use up all of my frozen peaches from last summer. It's easy, relatively quick, adaptable for varied tastes and pretty unique! I put it on rice, rice noodles or eat it alone. I think I'll add cashews next to see how it tastes with a little crunch. Thanks for the great recipe!
