I LOVE the combination of chicken and fruit so tonight I decided to braised some thighs with a peach flavor. It was AMAZING! The sweetness of the peach preserve and canned peaches pair just perfectly with the Worcestershire and ginger. I served the thighs over rice to soak up the amazing sauce! What a yummy weeknight meal!
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
Salt and pepper
1/2 c onions, diced
1 tsp ginger, grated
1/4 c chicken stock
1/4 c peach preserve
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 c peaches, diced
1 tsp lemon juice
1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Brown 5 minutes on each side and remove.
2. Add the onions and ginger, and cook 1 minute. Stir in stock, preserve, hot sauce and Worcestershire. Bring mixture to a boil and add chicken back.
3. Turn heat down to a simmer and cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through, 20 minutes. Remove chicken to serving platter.
4. Stir in butter, peaches and lemon juice. Turn heat up to a boil and cook until sauce thickens, stirring often, 5 minutes. Pour over chicken and serve.
