A true crowd pleaser. The chicken is roasted with fresh peaches. This sweet chicken is very juicy and goes very well with white rice.


Serves: 6 

  • 125g margarine (or butter)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) honey
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2kg bone-in chicken pieces, with skin
  • 500g fresh peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
