Roast chicken with sage-stuffed peaches

Andreas Trottmasndorff


Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, bone-in chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp butter , at room temperature
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 ripe peaches
  • 3 tbsp butter , at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage leaves
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 cup store-bought plain croutons
  • 1 green onion , sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Discard skin from chicken, if necessary. Place chicken in an 8-inch (2-L) baking dish or a dish just large enough to hold it in a single layer. In a small bowl, stir 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter with honey, Dijon, cumin and paprika. Rub all over chicken. Roast, uncovered, in centre of preheated oven, 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut peaches in half and discard pits. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard a little of the flesh, creating a small hollow. Place peaches in a pie plate. In a medium bowl, stir 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter with sage and poultry seasoning. Microwave on medium-high until melted, 1 minute. Add croutons and onion. Toss to evenly mix. Mound into peaches.
  • When chicken has roasted 20 minutes, baste with any pan juices. Place pie plate with peaches beside chicken and roast until stuffing is crusty, peaches are hot and chicken feels springy when pressed, 20 to 25 more minutes. Lovely with rice and beans.
