Chicken with Peaches and Basil
Why I Love This Recipe
This is wonderful when peaches are fresh and in season, but canned
peaches can be used when necessary.
Ingredients You'll Need
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil

In a shallow dish, combine flour and half of the salt and pepper, set aside 2 teaspoons for sauce. In remaining flour mixture, coat chicken well; shake of excess.

Meanwhile, peel and pit peaches; cut into wedges.
