Balsamic Peach Chicken Skillet

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil

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 balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp honey

1 cup sliced firm but ripe peaches (about 1 medium)

1 cup cherries, pitted

1 (14.5) oz can diced tomatoes, drained

1/4 cup thinly sliced basil ribbons

Directions

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium­high 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 Tbsp). 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 and stir until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Stir in honey then add

in peaches and tomatoes and toss, season lightly with salt and pepper. Return chicken to skillet,

nestling between peaches and tomatoes (you can lift some of the peaches and tomatoes over

the chicken to create more room), cover skillet with lid, reduce heat to medium­low and allow to

simmer until chicken has cooked through (it should register 165 degrees on an instant read

thermometer), about 6 9 minutes. Top with fresh basil.
