“OK, don't let the name scare you. It is only called that because my 11-yo daughter said the kitchen smelled like Peach Cobbler while this was cooking. I came up with this one night when I had seasoned boneless/skinless chicken thighs for fajitas & REALLY was tired of Mexican food. If you try it please post a comment, maybe you can make it BETTER! The kids seemed to like it & that is a BEAUTIFUL thing when you have an 11yo & twin 3yo boys!!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -5 pieces boneless chicken (I used boneless & skinless thighs)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons cooking oil, to coat pan
  • 1 cup chicken broth (I actually only had chicken boullion, so made my own!)
  • 12 cup frozen peaches
  • 12 cup peach butter (I'm sure you could use preserves also, but didn't have it!)
  • 14 cup water
  • 1 -2 tablespoon cornstarch (enough to make a slurry)


  1. Heat oil on medium - medium/high heat.
  2. Brown the chicken on both sides 4-5 mins per side.
  3. Remove chicken & set aside.
  4. Deglaze pan with chicken broth (stir liquid in pan to loosen all the browned "bits" from the bottom of pan).
  5. Stir in frozen peaches.
  6. Let peaches simmer 3-5 mins to slightly defrost.
  7. Stir in peach butter/preserves.
  8. Return chicken to pan.
  9. Let simmer until chicken is completely done (about 10 mins).
  10. Stir together water & enough cornstarch to make a slurry.
  11. Stir slurry into pan.
  12. Simmer for another 3-5 mins to thicken.
  13. Remove from heat & serve.
