Raise your hand if you want one of the most delicious dinners tonight? But like, a dinner that you can throw together after a long day? And you don’t really want to cook but you should probably eat some real food because Whole Foods salad bar isn’t cutting it.
*hands immediately shoot into the air*
Good. Great. Grand. Because these Peach Rosemary Chicken Thighs are here for you. I’m here for you. Because we’re friends, right?
So can I let you in on a little secret?
I’ve never eaten a peach before. Like… how have I made it all these years without eating one? Something about the fuzzy skin really freaked me out. What’s really weird is the skin isn’t all that fuzzy. So strange.
But now I’m on the peach train which is great because peach season is just about over. Awesome. Lovely. Can you sense my sarcasm?
Oh well, there’s always next year.
This Peach Rosemary Chicken Thigh recipe is stupid easy and stupid delicious. I bought peaches and was like, “these would be delicious with a little balsamic action and something herby.” And you know what? I was right.
There are a whopping 8 ingredients (when you include salt and pepper but you should almost always include salt) and you probably already have everything you need in your kitchen save fresh rosemary. If you don’t have fresh rosemary, you can either grab some from the store or just use dried rosemary. Keep in mind that if you’re using a dried herb, you should use more than instructed to get the same flavor punch. 👊🏼
Oh, you also need like… 30-45 minutes of time to finish this dish. I say you need 45 minutes because not all of us are freakin’ Bobby Flay in the kitchen and we need a little extra time to chop things up. BUT! About half of this cooking time is inactive otherwise known as “turn-on-a-timer-and-get-your-freakin-laundry-done” time.
I served my peach rosemary chicken thighs with some white rice and a side of arugula because… lazy. The leftovers – and there will be plenty unless you’re wrangling 4+ kids – are just as good the next day!
