Moroccan Peach Roasted Chicken
This is outstanding! Easy and very elegant, wonderful served with pilau. I have made this at least three times and never seem to have enough for everyone that wants more! I have a couple modifications that worked for us, ( but try the recipe as it is written because it is stellar as it is) I use a large Le Creuset pot, twirl it with some EVOO, then put a layer of extremely thin slices of onion down, then lay my boneless skinless chicken thighs on top. I do not like margarine, so we use butter for the sauce instead, doubling the rose water and adding 2 t. Orange blossom water. I do not stir to coat, just pour over, then cover the pot with the lid and put it into 400 degree F oven for about 40 minutes. At this point I remove the top, add the sliced peaches ( I omitted the extra sugar after the first time I made this because the peaches we had were very sweet already) and roast with the cover off until everything is golden perfection. The onions cook down into a nice dark sweet reduction that pairs well with the chicken and peach flavors. I cannot recommend this recipe enough, it's easy, impressive, and delicious.

General Tsao's Chicken II
Wow! This was really terrific- tastes exactly like Chinese restaurant General Tsao's. I did not have peanut oil, so I winged it with a T. of peanut butter and that worked well, and it also thickened the sauce so I got to skip the last step with the cornstarch, even though I also added 1/3 cup of orange juice to it earlier. I use fresh ginger juice for everything, and it was a little brighter in flavor than the powder. Our guests really went wild over this- they simply couldn't believe that this recipe could be made so easily at home. My only leftovers for lunch today :(
