Let’s give credit where credit it due. The foundation of this recipe has been on the back of the Heinz Malt Vinegar bottle for a long time. I’ve taken it up a notch. Peaches and Chicken just go together extremely well. The chicken cooked in peach sauce just melts in your mouth and the sauce itself has a sweet & sour flavor that is just fantastic. Up a notch with a little heat it becomes an even more exciting dish.
The original dish has 388 mg’s of sodium. My dish up a notch is only 154 mg’s of sodium even with a little heat thrown in for that exciting taste. Served over brown rice, this peach master piece will keep your taste buds dancing with delight…
