Directions

  1. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Pre-heat a large (12-13 inches) skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Arrange the chicken in the skillet in one layer and allow to sear until golden, about 4 minutes.  Turn over and sear until golden on the other side, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate or other container.
  3. Add the onions to the skillet and sprinkle with salt.  Sauté until just barely tender. Add the red pepper and sauté for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour in the wine and vinegar and deglaze the pan by scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon or spatula.  Bring to a simmer.
  5. Stir in the preserves and shoyu.  Add the chicken back to the skillet with the fresh peaches and bring to a simmer. Turn once to coat the topside of the chicken. Continue cooking the chicken if at this point it is not fully cooked through.  Top with fresh basil leaves.
  6. Notes:  sriracha can be used to taste in Step 5 instead of using the chili flakes.  Other fresh herbs that are delicious in this recipe are mint, chives and tarragon.

Notes:

*If using frozen peaches, add the peaches in step 4, after you pour in the wine and vinegar, right before you deglaze.
