Sweet & Savory Peach Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 6 Kimmel Orchard Peaches
  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Cup Onion – Diced
  • 1 Regular Size Can Chicken Stock or Broth
  • 2 Tblsp. Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tblsp. of Minced Kimmel Orchard Habanero Garlic
  • 2 Tblsp. Soy Sauce
  • 1 Dash Nutmeg
  • 3 Tblsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 Tblsp. Kimmel Orchard Hot Peach Sauce
  • Coconut Oil
  • Brown or White Rice
  • Salt, Pepper, Basil, Oregano to Taste

Instructions:

First, slice peaches and place in medium to large saucepan. In the saucepan, add the cinnamon, brown sugar, lemon juice, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then turn low and simmer until peaches are very soft and most of the liquid is absorbed and it is a caramel like consistency.

While Peaches are Cooking:

Dice the onion and sauté in a large pan with coconut oil, salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and Kimmel Orchard habanero garlic. Once the onions are browned and caramelized, add the chicken and cook on each side for 3-5 minutes. Add the chicken stock, Kimmel Orchard hot peach sauce, and soy sauce to pan. Bring to a boil, cover and cook until all broth is absorbed. Once the chicken is done, add your cooked peaches and stir until mixed. Serve over rice.

Simple Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

With strawberry season upon us, we whipped up a super EASY Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp. Using only strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and one of our Kimmel Orchard crisp mixes, this recipe is nearly fool proof.

  • 1/2 Cup to 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Package of Kimmel Orchard Crisp Mix
  • 4 Tblsp. Butter

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Dice strawberries and rhubarb into small chunks. Add desired amount of sugar to rhubarb and strawberries. We used a little over a 1/2 cup…just depends on how sweet you want it.🙂

Blend together 3/4 of the Kimmel Orchard crisp mix with 4 tablespoons of melted butter.

Put strawberry-rhubarb mix in a 9×9″ baking dish, top with crumbly mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream and enjoy!🙂
