Recipe: Cornmeal Chicken with Fresh Peach Salsa

I came across this recipe for chicken with peach salsa in a Betty Crocker Chicken Cookbook…. it’s very simple and so flavorful….. I make a lot of chicken… especially boneless chicken breasts… so I’m always in the market for something new. I liked this recipe because of the peaches…. it gives such a fresh taste to the meal.

This might be something you would be interested in making for a romantic dinner for …. Serve with rice pilaf and maybe asparagus…. a nice white wine…. hmmmm… very nice.


Cornmeal Chicken with Fresh Peach Salsa Recipe:

All you need:

For the Peach Salsa:

3 cups of peaches, peeled and chopped
1 large tomato (about 1 cup), chopped
¼ cup chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt

For the Chicken:

½ cup yellow cornmeal
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons oil

All you have to do:

Mix all the ingredients for the salsa together in a bowl and set aside.

Mix the cornmeal, salt and pepper together in a plastic bag.

Coat the chicken pieces with the cornmeal mixture.

Heat the oil in a large skillet, over medium high heat.

Add the chicken. Cook the chicken about 15 to 20 minutes or until done (juices run clear), turning once.

When chicken is cooked, remove from the skillet to a serving platter.

Put some of the peach salsa over the chicken.

Put the rest of the peach salsa on the table for quests to help themselves to more.
