Moroccan Peach Chicken

    45 minutes

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

    This recipe is awesome. Don't worry if you don't have rose water, it will still taste just fine.  -  02 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made exactly as stated and it was extremely pretty and tasted great. Mine got a wee bit overcooked as the phone rang just before serving, but not the recipe fault. This would be lovely as a dish to serve company and I think other fruits or nuts could be used too.  -  27 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added a grated onion to the peaches plus 1 tp of cinammon to the sugar over the peaches. I think it will be great also with quinces. In that case add more sugar.  -  28 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
