Chicken in Peach Sauce

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions; to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required, and to understand the steps and timings involved.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal for summer nights, then consider this tasty chicken in peach sauce (which we served over rice).

It’s a two-part recipe in that you need to make the peach compote (that we featured in our Grilled Chicken Brie Panini) to use when making the dish. But that recipe is easy too – and can be made a few days in advance if desired.

Even if you cooked the peach compote and then went on to make the chicken in peach sauce, dinner would still be on the table in around 45 minutes!

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
