Polynesian Chicken

Hmmm. I seem to have a chicken-and-fruit Thing. Oh well, here's another one!

1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/2 cup flour
2 1/4 lb chicken pieces - can use chicken breast strips
1/2 c shortening (I just use as little vegetable oil as I can get away with)
1 c orange juice
2 T brown sugar
2 T vinegar
1 t basil
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cup sliced peaches

Combine salt, paprika and flour, lightly coat chicken. Heat shortening or oil in a skillet with a lid, brown chicken on all sides.

Mix OJ, brown sugar, vinegar, basil, and nutmeg, pour around chicken in the skillet. Cover and simmer 30-40 minutes.

Add peaches, simmer 5 more minutes.

Hi Cindy!

Yum -- that sounds great.

I actually cooked today! {applause} I really love to cook, but since I work now, it's really tough. I made a chicken dish in a cream sauce flavored with yummy spices and a habanero pepper. Delicious!

Hi Rose!
Nice to see you. Could I have that recipe for the chicken?
