Peach Chicken Sweet and Sour


This was the winning recipe of the 2011 Peach Cook-Off.

Peach Chicken Sweet & Sour—Marcia Cahoon

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sliced carrots
1 onion, julienned
1 medium green pepper, julienned
2 ribs celery, sliced
2 cups cubed, fresh peaches

Saute chicken in olive oil until chicken is no longer pink, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Make sauce while chicken is cooking. Add carrots to chicken in the skillet with a little water. Cover skillet and cook on medium heat until carrots are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally and adding a little water as needed to keep from scorching. Add onion, green pepper and celery. Saute until onion wilts and peppers and celery are bright and crisp-tender. Pour sauce over chicken and vegetables and simmer for a few minutes. Stir in peaches just before serving and serve immediately over rice.

Sauce
1 cup peach jam
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Heat in saucepan over medium heat just until brown sugar melts. Whip in blender to make smooth.
