Compliments of Heinz Malt Vinegar:
SERVES 4 -5
2-1/2 pounds skinless chicken pieces (IMO, drumsticks & thighs work best)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (16 ounce) can peach slices, drained & juice reserved
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup malt vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1.) In large skillet, brown the chicken in the vegetable oil.
2.) Combine the reserved peach juice, orange juice concentrate, malt vinegar, brown sugar, basil, salt, cloves, cinnamon, & pepper. Pour over browned chicken. Cover & simmer 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
3.) Using kitchen tongs, remove chicken pieces to a platter. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to 2 tablespoons of water & stir until mixture is smooth; add to skillet using a whisk. Continue whisking until sauce is free of any lumps & thickens slightly.
4.) Return chicken pieces to skillet . Add peach slices & heat several minutes more.
5.) Serve chicken & sauce over a bed of rice.
6.) Sit down and enjoy some quality time with your family...& a tasty meal! :)
