The Olive Bin

Oregano Peach Chicken

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil to medium/high. Add the onion, garlic, salt and pepper, sautéing until the onion is translucent and soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add the peach slices to the pan and sauté with the onion for another 5 minutes. Add the honey and balsamic vinegar to the pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced to a thick syrup. Do not reduce too long or the syrup will caramelize. Place the chicken thighs in a lightly greased baking dish. Pour the peach sauce over the chicken, spreading the peaches over the chicken evenly. Bake for 1 ½ hours, or until tender and cooked through. Remove from oven and pour the liquid in the pan into a small saucepan. Bring the liquid to a boil over high heat and let boil down to a thick sauce, about 2-3 minutes. Pour the sauce back over the chicken, evenly coating. Serve over rice or quinoa.
