Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 70


1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken or just use chicken pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 peaches, quartered (peeled, if desired)
4 small shallots, halved or 1 chopped red onion
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
6 sprigs fresh thyme

Rinse the chicken inside and out and pat it dry with paper towels.

Rub the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.

Place in a roasting pan or baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine the peaches, shallots, vinegar, thyme, and the remaining oil, salt, and pepper.

Scatter the peach mixture around the chicken. Roast until the chicken is cooked through and a thigh registers 180° F on a meat thermometer, about 1 hour, 10 minutes.

Let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

Serve with the peaches and pan sauce.

Couscous is a great accompaniment.

With peaches in season and tasting so great, try this fowl/fruit combo.
