Ginger Chicken with Peaches and Onion

Source: Everyday Food, December 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (1 pound) frozen peaches, unthawed
  • 2 red onions, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 4 bone-in skin-on chicken breast halves, (10 to 12 ounces each)
  • Cooked white rice, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place peaches and onions on a large rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with ginger, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, sesame oil, and red-pepper flakes; toss to coat.

  2. Rub chicken with remaining teaspoon vegetable oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange chicken skin side up among peaches and onions.

  3. Roast until chicken is opaque throughout and registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast (avoiding bone), 25 to 30 minutes. Serve chicken with white rice, peaches, and onions.

    "Unthawed"? Wouldn't you think the Martha Stewart people would have a handle on basic vocabulary?

  • marlowlu 24 Apr, 2012

    agreed, this recipe is good. i used vegetarian nuggets instead of chicken and added two cloves of garlic plus extra of all the flavors. i didn't make rice but it worked since there wasn't much juice.

    Not your average boring chicken recipe. Easy and full of flavor. The chicken is juicy. The peaches and onions and sauce are delicious over the rice. Great leftovers. Did I mention quick and easy to make with familiar ingredients but looks and tastes special.

    I made this dish for my best friend (she loves peaches) and it was a hit! Simple yet elegant. Great for any occasion.

    danadolittle:
    basically it's to use all the ingredients besides the peaches themselves as a marinade..

  • Danadolittle 8 Sep, 2008

    I'm making this tonight for dinner. What is the marinade?

  • koolmomof6 8 Sep, 2008

    this recipe was fantastic! I used everyone's suggestions to marinate before and I added 2 T of brown sugar at the end b/c I felt it had a lot of "kick" and needed a little sweetness too. I also added 2 cloves of crushed garlec. I used legs (nobody here likes breasts besides cutlets) and everyone loved it.

    my family liked this, with the exception of the couple that didn't like onions. I used fresh peaches and just threw them in the freezer. that worked. I'd like to say make sure to cut the peaches kind of thick or they'll get really limp and soggy. I used boneless skinless chicken and that works just fine.

    I will make this recipe tommorrow night for a special guest from Belguim ans my in-laws, sure hope it tastes as good as it sounds!

  • hazen 4 Sep, 2008

    This sounds wonderful. I'll have to try it, but with Fresh Peaches while tehy are still good.
    I'm creating a recipe book (you can too- www.celebratngmystory.com) with the ones I like. I too will double the sauce and lots of peaches!!

  • osagej4 4 Sep, 2008

    I want to try this with just regular skinless boneless frozen chicken breast...

  • LivingTheGoodLife 17 Aug, 2008

    This recipe was delicious and very quickly assembled! I read the previous comments so I decided to double the "sauce" and decided to let it sit in the fridge to let all the flavors marry (I did not put in any of the peaches and only half of the onions when I let it marinate) My finicky husband loved this meal. I served it with soba noodles (I added soy sauce to the water they cooked in) and some steamed broccolini. He has already asked when I'm going to make this meal again!!

  • motherof2_com 18 Mar, 2008

    This was well received by my spouse, but I did dump in more flavoring. Will make again

  • mimi7 6 Mar, 2008

    After reading the previous reviews, I decided to marinate the meat in the sauce for the afternoon. I then made another batch of the sauce to use on the peaches and onions as it calls for in the recipe. The chicken was flavored perfectly and cooked perfectly! Definitely recommend this dish. It was easy and my 2 year old even liked it!

  • Curtismom 21 Feb, 2008

    I have found that if I use thin chicken tenderloins rather than the bone-in, skin-on chicken and then marinate the chicken and onions in the ginger/soy mixture for approx. 15 minutes in a freezer bag, the chicken soaks in the flavor and is delicious! I add the peaches just prior to cooking and give it all a good toss - then place them on the pan and cook.

  • dr_domestic 23 Jan, 2008

    Well, if you add more ginger and pepper flakes, or marinate the chicken in the ginger- soy mixture, the chicken has a lot of flavor. I thought it was great, and so did my friends!

  • maczaddy 15 Jan, 2008

    This was okay. certainly easy but I had hoped for even more flavor for the chicken, which still tasted bland.
