1. Peach and Walnut Chicken Summer Recipe...
We love cooking chicken recipes for dinner, but we usually use the same barbeque sauce or marinade each time and that makes for a boring meal! When I saw this peach and walnut summer recipe I knew it would be a great way to change things up and enjoy something new while still using our favorite protein. I love the idea of picking up a rotisserie chicken from the store to make a summer dinner easier on yourself while adding a few ingredients to make it interesting.
- 2 tablespoons walnut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon peach jam
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 ripe yellow peaches, peeled and sliced
- 1 rotisserie chicken, quartered and skinned
- 1/2 cup basil leaves
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup glazed walnuts or other glazed nuts, chopped
- " In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, jam, cayenne, vinegar, and salt. Add peach slices and gently toss to coat with dressing."
- "Arrange chicken on a large platter. Evenly spoon peaches and dressing over chicken. Sprinkle with basil, feta, and walnuts."
