    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C . Lightly grease a baking dish.

    This recipe was awsome, everyone loved it, I used can peaches since they are out of season and it turned out great.  -  28 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Don't let some of the reviews scare you away from trying this wonderful recipe! I almost didn't make this because of many reviews complaining about "the sweetness". I'm glad I did! I started by seasoning my chicken breasts with some white wine vinegar and lemon juice. I used the vinegar to offset the sweetness "problem". I then sprinkled black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder over the breasts. I pretty much followed the rest of the recipe as written. I used a fresh peach(with white flesh though) and used a "light" brown sugar to save calories. For the sauce, I used a combo of half cold water/half chilled white wine(Pinot Grigio) mixed with the corn starch. I sprinkled a bit of fresh parsley leaves over it all too. The end result was just fantastic, and even my boyfriend said he couldn't wait until I made this tasty dish again! And, the whole recipe was very quick and easy too. What more could I ask for? Try this, you'll love it! Thank you Lor for a delicious recipe!  -  30 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The sauce in this recipe is one of the best I've ever tasted! I used pork chops instead of chicken, seasoned them with meat tenderizer, salt and pepper, and browned them before assembling and baking the rest of the dish. I bought a large can of peaches and only used about half the can with some of the juice. I wish I had used the whole can as the peaches were so yummy in this dish. At the end of the bake time I put it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown it nicely. The combination of the pork and the peaches and the "to die for peachy, clove-y, gingery" sauce made this an unforgettable dinner. It was also super easy. I made this for a casual meal at home with my family, but would definitely serve it for company, too. Thank you for this delicious recipe!  -  18 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
