Spicy Southern Comfort Glazed Chicken with Grilled Peaches
Sometimes, weird flavours come together to create uniquely tasty dishes - and this Southern Comfort Glazed Chicken with Grilled Peaches is one of those instances.
When I was developing the recipe for my One Pot Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Basil and Peaches, my mind had wandered to other possibilities.
Some things just work well together, right?
Not one to leave well enough alone, I figured I'd mash both ideas - Peaches and Southern Comfort together, AND sweet + chicken - together, and see what happens. After all, I'd only ever used Southern Comfort for a savoury recipe once - my Southern Comfort Glazed Ham - so really... the time had come to get up to some nonsense in the kitchen!
I’ll be honest, as I started mixing it up, I was having my doubts.
Usually, I’m really good at “tasting” a final recipe in my head, before I even gather up the ingredients. This one was harder to picture, and the mental “taste” of it kept changing. That was... new.
Early on, I decided that I should add some spice to it, rather than just have it be a straight sweet glaze - and I think that likely made all the difference in the world. The mental “taste” at that point solidified, and I knew it would be decent, at the very least.
It was actually really good!
The first bite was a bit weird - after a moment, I realized that it was that I was eating something that tasted like WINGS, but as a sliced chicken breast. The context change kind of threw me.
After that first confusing bite, it was great! The chicken turned out super juicy, and I’m really digging eating peaches with chicken in general. If you're looking for something a bit different to serve, I highly recommend trying this Spicy Southern Comfort Glazed Chicken with Grilled Peaches.
Some day, though, I'll have to make the sauce to use on wings. I bet the sauce would be AMAZING on the crispy skin of air fried wings.
