When I saw this sweet&sour Thai chicken with peaches, I put it immediately on my to-do list. This is the Pinterest board interesting recipes, where I save recipes I like for later inspiration. This recipe has everything: it is easy, it has a surprising combination of ingredients, and it has all kinds of flavours from sweet over bitter, salt and sour to crunchy. Delicious for the mouth.
I made it the first time some weeks ago, when I was with friends. The reactions were so positive that I decided to redo it for the blog with pictures and so to share it to the world. The original idea comes from the foodblog.net, where I saw something like this first.
Are you interested in other surprising chicken recipes? Maybe this recipes give you some inspiration:
If you want, you can also (partially) use fresh peaches if they are available. However make sure that they are not overripe. Otherwise you will risk that they disintegrate while cooking. And of course it is easy because you can reuse the sauce in the case of canned peaches. So nothing gets lost.
I also like the grounded peanuts in this recipe. Besides the overwhelming tastes in the recipe, they give it some crunchy bites. You may even consider roasting and salting them a bit for the extra special touch. I might also do that on a next occasion. Last time I used cashew nuts, which also works quite well in this recipe.
I did not add extra pepper and salt, as there is already so much flavor in the ingredients and the spices. But that is up to everyone's taste of course.
