Peaches are always in plentiful supply in the southern US states so it’s no surprise that they’re in a lot of Soul Food recipes. This is a great tasting and easy to make dish. I love the way the Pepper on the chicken bounces off the peaches, it’s like a party on your taste buds
Heat your oven to 180 C. Rinse the chicken breasts and pat them dry with some kitchen roll. Place them in a baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the lemon pepper and salt. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the lemon pepper mixture and let stand for at least 20 minutes or, even better, overnight in the fridge.
Drain the syrup from the peaches into a small bowl. Stir the lemon juice and soy sauce into the syrup and pour it over the chicken pieces.
Pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes and turn the chicken about half way through. Then add the peach slices and cook for another 10 -15 minutes or until the chicken is done.
This is great served with some Mashed Potatoes and a lightly buttered corn on the cob. Oh and I almost forgot here’s a great track to play in the background while cooking this recipe…
