I used a 14 oz can of peaches and even added a small amount of the syrup. It stretched the sauce out which was great as the sauce on rice was very good. Would add some spice (cayenne?) next time for zip but otherwise a tasty recipe.
I made a whole lot of changes to this recipe and was really pleased with the result. I used 1/2 tsp lemon juice instead of a lemon (added with the water) and halved 8 ripe apricots instead of the peach. I also changed the cooking method after browning the chicken I put it in a dish in a medium oven whilst I made the sauce according to the recipe up to addding the water when I also added the apricots. All this warm sauce was poured over the browned drumsticks and baked for around half an hour. The sauce thickened in the oven so I didn't use any cornflour. The chicken was so juicy and the flavor beautifully ballanced not too much of any one.
Very good though it had more of a honey-lemon than peach flavour. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch instead of a teaspoon and liked the consistency of the sauce that I got. The peaches we had on hand were pretty small so I used two instead of one. When I reheated the leftovers on the stove the next day I cooked a little extra sauce and added more peach since we had eaten most of the fruit when we ate the dish fresh. This brought out the peach flavour nicely. Thanks for a great recipe! I will be making this again. Edit: The second time I made this I used 2 regular sized peaches - I was glad I did. They were not overpowering but gave a nice flavour. I put in 1 tsp of cornstarch like the recipe calls for. I found the sauce very runny and will be sure to use 1 Tbsp in the future. Even though the sauce didn't thicken like I hoped it would we still really enjoyed the meal.
Instead of using drumsticks I cut breasts into strips. I also followed another suggestion and used a Tbsp of cornstarch instead of a tsp. I served it over white rice and my husband loved it! Even better as leftovers after reheating. I think next time I'll try dicing the chicken after browning the strips.
This recipe is "just okay" as another reviewer aptly put it. Nothing to brag about it's not delightfully infused with this delicious peachy taste... maybe if you double the peaches and the honey and marinate everything a really long time... I don't think I'll be making this one again though.
