    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish.
    2. Place chicken in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with half of the brown sugar. Place peach slices over chicken, then sprinkle with remaining sugar, ginger, cloves and lemon juice.
    3. Cook for about 30 minutes in preheated oven, basting often with juices, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.


    For a delicious sauce to serve over the chicken and peaches, mix 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch with 110ml cold water and pour mixture into cooking juices. Stir over medium heat until the sauce thickens.

    Don't let some of the reviews scare you away from trying this wonderful recipe! I almost didn't make this because of many reviews complaining about "the sweetness". I'm glad I did! I started by seasoning my chicken breasts with some white wine vinegar and lemon juice. I used the vinegar to offset the sweetness "problem". I then sprinkled black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder over the breasts. I pretty much followed the rest of the recipe as written. I used a fresh peach(with white flesh though) and used a "light" brown sugar to save calories. For the sauce, I used a combo of half cold water/half chilled white wine(Pinot Grigio) mixed with the corn starch. I sprinkled a bit of fresh parsley leaves over it all too. The end result was just fantastic, and even my boyfriend said he couldn't wait until I made this tasty dish again! And, the whole recipe was very quick and easy too. What more could I ask for? Try this, you'll love it! Thank you Lor for a delicious recipe!  -  30 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
