This roasted chicken and sweet peaches recipe is from the archives and as I read through this old post I’m almost in tears with laughter. I completely remember writing this and all the remodeling chaos that ensued. Although my DIY days are long gone, this recipe is still just as enchanting today as it was back then. Enjoy!
The last few months I’ve been reading dozens of informative and sometimes funny DIY remodeling blog posts. Mostly because I needed to read about other people’s headaches and successes with home remodeling and renovation.
I thought it might make me feel better about the visual chaos that ensues my house right now.
Sadly, it did not. I’ve decided I’m much better at handling schedule chaos. Visual chaos drives me nutty.
Orange Home Depot buckets filled with tools and tile pieces, nails and pipe fittings casually sit in various corners of the house.
Old doors leaving and new doors coming in. A giant bathroom vanity in the garage waiting to be installed along with new paint and tile flooring. And an enormous gray and blue commercial heavy duty vacuum cleaner sitting in the middle of my den. My oldest gal calls this monstrosity “R2D2”.
Yep, Ranger Craig and I are Do It Yourselfers. A few years ago (when I was younger) I proudly stated that fact.
Now I find myself cruising the web for various home remodeling contractors… hoping someday soon Ranger Craig will tire of the DIY projects. 🙂
Until then, schedules are filling and its back to school for the two Sassy Bennett gals. Dinner becomes a little more challenging to achieve, but I’ve always got a quick recipe in my back pocket. You’re going to love this one!
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love!
Roasted Chicken and Peaches with Tangy Red Onion and a sprinkling of Bleu Cheese. A most delicious combination of flavors that savor the last of our summer season.
- 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (this can also be done with bone-in chicken pieces, it’ll just need to cook longer)
- 4-5 medium to large peaches, pitted and thick sliced (no need to peel)
- 1 small red onion, halved and thick sliced
- ¼ -1/3 cup crumbled Bleu cheese or Gorgonzola (I love Rogue Creamery Smokey Bleu with this recipe!)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or ghee
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh chopped basil as a garnish (optional)
