To start, you’ll need boneless, skinless chicken breasts, ripe peaches, jalapenos, garlic, onion, chicken broth, honey, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, cornstarch, salt, and pepper.

Begin by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook the chicken breasts until they are browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.

In the same skillet, add diced onions and minced garlic, and sauté until they are soft and fragrant. Add diced peaches, sliced jalapenos (seeds removed for less heat, if desired), chicken broth, honey, apple cider vinegar, and soy sauce to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with a little water to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the skillet and stir well to thicken the sauce.

Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the sauce over them. Cook for a few more minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Serve the Jalapeno Peach Chicken hot, garnished with fresh cilantro or green onions, if desired. This dish pairs well with rice, quinoa, or roasted vegetables.

Jalapeno Peach Chicken is a delightful and unique dish that is sure to impress your family and friends. The combination of sweet peaches, spicy jalapenos, and savory chicken creates a flavor explosion that will leave everyone craving more. Enjoy!
