The Bitten Peach – Chicken and Yam Bake

Peach cultivation has gone on for about 4,000 years. You might not know that the term "bitten peach", first used by Legalist philosopher Han Fei in 250BC, became a byword for homosexuality. The book records the incident when courtier Mizi Xia bit into an especially delicious peach and gave the remainder to his lover, Duke Ling of Wei, as a gift so that he could taste it as well.

Well the marriage of peach and sweet potato is 

heavenly on the pecan encrusted chicken. This is 

served with a simple side of green beans and 

cherry tomatoes. Try it and see what mischief you 

can get into!


2 (15-ounce) cans yams, drained + diced 

(save back ½ cup of the juice)

1 can peach slices drained (save back ½ cup 

of the juice)
½ cup peach preserves
Split chicken breast (about 2 lbs) Use both 

½ teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

½ cup crushed pecans

½ cup brown sugar

What To Do:

Before you start, rinse chicken and place in a 

large bowl to cover with buttermilk. Let this 

sit while you get everything else ready and 

the oven pre-heats. If you think about it, let 

it sit overnight in the refrigerator!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9" x 

13" baking dish with cooking spray.

In the prepared baking dish, combine the 

yams, peaches, mix well.

In a medium bowl mix brown sugar with 


In a larger bowl combine the juice from 

yams and peaches Spoon in the peach 

preserves and bump in the microwave for 

about 1.5 minutes. Stir this well. This will 

serve as the marinade.

When oven is ready. Rinse off the chicken 

and pat it dry with paper towels.

Place the chicken with meat & skin side up 

on the bed of peaches and yams. Spoon the 

pecan-brown sugar mixture on top and pack 

it down with you hand to cover it well.

Spoon the juice mixture around this and wet 


This will bake for about an hour. Set 

your timer for 20 minutes as the dish goes 

in the oven. When it goes off, baste with 

more of the juice mixture and turn the pan 

around in the oven. Re-set the timer

Repeat this a  third time to take you to the 

full hour. 

Check the chicken with an instant read 

thermometer. It must read 160 to 165 for 
the chicken to be cooked.

Remove from oven and let rest for 

5 minutes.


You can also sprinkle with dried cranberries 

for a little additional color and flavor. Or 
even try substituting crushed pineapple for 

the pecans, its all good.

What a beautiful meal to place before your 

Master! For our music:
