Chicken in the Gloaming

The idea of mixing the taste of peaches with mushrooms and onion comes from Renaissance Italy. Of course back then they didn't care about calories, fats, or glutens. The fact is this dish is very healthy and will fit within most dietary restrictions. It is just an added plus that it is easy to make and inexpensive. So why not impress tonight with a new creation!

Baking a boneless skinless chicken breast in non fat yogurt and fruit is yummy enough but here we throw a twist and instead of serving this creamy delight on noodles (with all of that gluten), we serve this on a bed of cheap store brand puffed rice. Yes, trust me on this it works and you get some breakfast food for morning with the rest of the bag.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
¼ lbs mushrooms, washed, drained, sliced
3 tbs diced red onion
2 peaches sliced thin (if from a can, use the juice packed not syrup)
2 tbs oil
2 tbs butter
2 tbs flour
3 tubs (5.3oz) non fat, plain, Greek style yogurt

Store equivalent for Rice Krispies cereal

Chop the red onion and place in a bowl of water with 1 tsp sugar for 5 minutes. The drought has caused the onions to have a bitter taste, this will help. Wash and dry the mushrooms then slice.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat 2 tbs of the oil in a large pan and fry the onions, mushrooms, and peaches for about 3 minutes and remove.

  • Add the chicken to the skillet and brown each side for about 4 minutes

  • Place chicken in a sprayed baking dish and spoon the onion – mushroom mixture on top.
  • Add butter to any left over oil and heat, then stir in the flour, cooking for about 1 minute while stirring.

  • Mix in the yogurt, stirring until incorporated. Pour this over the chicken.
  • Bake at 375 for an hour, covered with foil. Test with a thermometer, chicken breasts should reached 165 degrees. Remove from oven and let rest 4 minutes.
  • Serve the breasts on a bed of puffed rice with the sauce mixture spooned over.
