Simple One Skillet Recipe: Glazed Peach Chicken and Rice

I love simple skillet recipes and this glazed one skillet peach chicken is perfect for that. Without fail, having an easy and quick dinner is what my family needs at the end of a busy day. At the beginning of the week, we can have at least 5 adults and 2 kids eating dinner. I need a meal that will not only satisfy the kids but that is also budget-friendly and quick to prepare is an all-around winner.

Glazed Peach Chicken and Rice is the Weeknight Dinner You Crave

This healthy and easy skillet meal is just perfect for busy evenings. It's full of delicious ingredients, such as chicken and a savory peach compote which becomes the glaze. It can be thrown together quickly and tastes as if it took you all day to make. The crucial part of this recipe is the savory peach compote. When you make the peach compote ahead of time and refrigerate it, it will add a completely different dimension to the dish when it's heated later. The sweetness of the peach balanced with the savory notes of garlic, crushed red pepper, cinnamon and rosemary give it this wondrous flavor you'll make over and over again.

What kind of chicken is best for this recipe?

The original recipe called for chicken thighs, however I like using boneless skinless chicken breasts for this as it's healthier for weight watchers points.

Can this be made in the oven instead of on the stove?

Absolutely, if you prefer baked chicken, instead of cutting the chicken breast into cubes, leave it whole and place it in a casserole dish and add the peach compote sauce to create the glaze on top. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

What are the Ingredients in this recipe?

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Savory Peach Compote – (Olive Oil, Garlic, Red Onion, Dried Rosemary, Ground Cinnamon, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Fresh Lemon Juice, Peaches, Honey, Water)

What Is Savory Peach Compote?

This unique compote is a delicious combination of sweet, juicy peaches and savory spices like cinnamon, rosemary, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Whether you’re adding it to roasted meat, topping off a salad, or just eating it on its own, this compote will add some pizzaz to your plate.

What Side Dishes Should I Serve With This?

While the classic pairing is to serve it on top of rice or riced cauliflower. However, I've also used this recipe in other ways such as leaving the chicken breast whole and serving it with the sauce on top and a side of roasted broccoli. You could also serve it with broccoli stir fry. Another alternative is to add some sliced peaches and a side of grilled asparagus.
