I actually made this recipe for one of my other sites. Since the sales this week screamed for this dish…I thought I’d share it with you guys too. My Sticky Peach Chicken is one of my all time favorite meals!
You don’t need a ton of ingredients to have this on the table fast. I typically have about 2/3 of the ingredients on hand pretty much all of the time. So when I saw the BOGO sale on chicken thighs and sale on peaches, I knew this would be on my menu.
To keep it economical, just pair it with the BOGO Near East Couscous or Rice-A-Roni and your veggie of choice and you have an AMAZING meal that’s full of huge flavor.
Here are the items on sale in the current Publix ad –

I have played around with this recipe over the years and finally came up with what I think is perfect.
When you look at the recipe, you might notice that there is no oil. I have found that using chicken thighs with the skin intact makes for that perfect crispy texture that pairs so nicely with soft peaches. You just poke the skin with a knife and throw it into a hot pan. The chicken stays moist and the skin is crispy…it’s amazing.
With the addition of the peaches and that yummy sauce you have a dish that’s a little bit savory and a little bit sweet and oh, so delicious!
I prefer to debone the chicken thigh before cooking. It’s really quite easy to do and only takes a total of 5 minutes to do 4 thighs. If you don’t want to remove the bone, just be aware that you might have to increase your cook time a little bit.
Grab a few ingredients when you shop this week and give my recipe a try and let me know what you think.
