Our juicy Colorado peaches are the envy of many. Finally ripe and on the shelves, give these two fun recipes a try this season.

 

1 TBSP olive oil                                    4- six  ounce boneless chicken breasts

4- peaches peeled and sliced            1 TBSP packed light brown sugar

1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves                    1 tsp. freshly grated ginger

¾ cup Sauvignon Blanc                     salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with ½ tsp. each of salt and pepper and cook on one side until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute, then scatter the peaches, sugar, thyme and ginger over and round the chicken. Add the white wine, and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the peaches are warm and starting to break down at the edges, 6 to 7 minutes. Serve over couscous, rice, pasta, greens or alone.  Serves 4.
