A healthy dinner is ready with only 5 minutes of preparation! This One Skillet Peach Glazed Chicken is a fast, fresh, and family-friendly meal to take advantage of summer's produce.

Hi, friends! If you saw my recent Weekend Recap, then you know that I snagged quite a few quarts of white and yellow peaches from our farmer's market a couple of weeks ago. Over the course of that week, we devoured them in these ice cream desserts, in a healthy breakfast cobbler, and in this savory dish for supper. When it's peach season, we take full advantage!

Since I'm especially busy at the moment with three little kids at home for the summer, I don't have much time to get dinner on the table in the evening. Instead, I rely on quick-fix options -- with bonus points when there are minimal dishes to wash afterwards. This one-skillet peach glazed chicken dinner fits the bill!

What You Need

  • Skinless and boneless chicken thighs
  • Canola oil
  • Sweet onion
  • Peaches
  • Coconut palm sugar
  • Rosemary
  • Dijon
  • Salt and pepper

Top Tip for Making Peach Glazed Chicken

I browned boneless, skinless chicken thighs in a pan before simmering the peach sauce. The thighs are cheaper than breast meat, and I think that they stay juicier and have more flavor than boneless breasts.

If you prefer chicken tenders or chicken breasts, either of those options will also work here. You'll just have to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Making the Peach Glaze

The glaze is super simple and is a great mix of sticky sweet and savory flavors. I used coconut palm sugar which adds a delicious caramelization tot he glaze but you could also use regular brown sugar that will still give you great results.

The mustard and vinegar really help take the edge of the sweetness and adds a punch of flavor. Make sure to use ripe peaches that are in season for the best glaze possible.

With diced peaches, fresh herbs from the garden, and some dijon mustard for added zest, this is one light, flavor-packed clean eating dinner that you have GOT to try this season!
