Peach Glazed Chicken with Plum Organics + Prize Pack Giveaway

Even before I was contacted by Plum Organics about creating a gourmet recipe for their Little Foodies Cookbox, I frequently purchased their baby foods as snacks for the boys.  Because while you might consider them baby food, they actually have so much more flavor than other purees, and I love how portable they are for snacks.  Plus, I feel good knowing that they are wholesome and free from all the yucky stuff - indeed, the only ingredient in the Just Peaches is just that...organic peaches! The boys love all the different flavors, and are thrilled when I pull them out.  I think Reid may hold the world record for fastest guzzling of a Plum fruit pouch. 
 While I had never considered using their products in the creation of dinner, I realized it was a brilliant idea!  The recipe I created is for Glazed Peach Chicken.  Bursting with flavor, you'll notice just a hint of the succulent peaches.  It doesn't even take many ingredients to toss this together.

Recipe Ingredients:
1.5 pounds chicken breasts
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup cream sherry
4 tsp. sugar
2 chopped fresh garlic cloves
2 (3.5 ounces each) Just Peaches Plum Organics pouches
Directions:




1.       Combine soy sauce, sherry, and sugar in a small saucepan.  Heat until sugar has dissolved. 
2.       Remove from heat and stir in garlic and Just Peaches pouches.
3.       Divide sauce in two.  Place chicken in an airtight container and pour half the sauce over chicken.  Place remaining sauce in separate airtight container.
4.       Allow chicken to marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
5.       Preheat oven to 325*.  Place chicken in baking dish and discard marinade.  Pour fresh reserved sauce over chicken.
6.       Bake uncovered for one hour.

 You could half the marinade recipe and reuse it, but I've always thought that a little icky, which is why I made a double batch so you can use fresh.  I'm sure, as well, that you could skip the fridge marinating part if you were in a pinch time-wise, and still end up with a delicious dinner.  I served ours with a barley/celery/onion and herbs medley, plus some steamed broccoli.  You can also check out the recipe on the Plum Organics Little Foodies Cookbox here

Plum Organics is generously giving away a prize pack to one reader.  This prize pack is so cool that I had to hide it in a closet, for fear my boys would get a hold of it!  Stuffed with an assortment of baby food, toddler food, snacks, buttons, stickers and even coupons, this would be a great one to win!  This is a Rafflecopter giveaway, so just click on the "Read More" under my signature to enter.
Disclaimer:  Plum provided me with a 6 pack of the peach flavored baby food to create a recipe.  I was also provided with a prize pack to give away on my blog. In addition, I was compensated for the development of the recipe.  This did not influence how I feel about their product, and the opinions above are my own.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

What a great idea! Who would've thought to use "baby food" as a pureed ingredient in a recipe!

I wonder if if they'd work in making a smoothie-like dessert (like the pear one with some fresh blueberries or something) for during the summertime.

My son has enjoyed every single flavor I've given him, and I love it too since he's an anti-veggie little guy. I try to get the pouches that have both fruits and veggies.

We haven't tried the fiddle sticks yet, I'd love to have him try those one day. :)
