Peachy Balsamic Skillet Chicken

I don't know if I like the peaches or the chicken best in this dish.  It's definitely a company dish.


2 tablespoons Unflavored or Basil Olive Oil or more

1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced (about 3/4 cup)

4 (5 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts or 1 1/4 lbs. chicken breast tenderloins

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 cup Peach Balsamic Vinegar, plus 2 tablespoon

2 cups sliced firm, but ripe, peaches (about 2 medium)

1 (14.5) oz. can diced tomatoes, drained

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onion and saute 3 minutes, then push far to the side.  Add chicken, season with salt and pepper. and cook until golden, about 2 1/2 minutes per side.


Remove chicken from skillet and transfer to a plate, while leaving oil and onions in skillet (if you don't have much oil left you can add another 1/2 tablespoon).  Add garlic to skillet and saute 20 seconds (you can push onions back to center if you haven't already).  Add balsamic vinegar, and cook while stirring until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Add peaches and tomatoes, and toss.  Season lightly with salt and pepper.


Return chicken to skillet, nestling between peaches and tomatoes.  Cover skillet with lid, reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer until chicken has cooked through (165 degrees on an instant read thermometer), about 6 - 9 minutes.


Top with fresh basil and serve warm.
