A couple days ago I sent out a meeting request to my graduate committee in order to schedule my dissertation defense. Commence total freak out/panic attack. 4 of the 5 have responded thus far and it looks like it may be either Sept 23 or 24th, assuming the 5th person has no conflicts those days.

It’s a little over 2 months away but just thinking about it gets my heart racing in nervous anticipation. I feel as though I have so much to do still! You may not notice by looking at me but inside I am screaming. Once I know the date for sure I’ll be in desperate need of food blogging friend-guest posts the week or two beforehand. Until then I’ll do my best not to neglect the spiffyness.

Easy Peach Chicken with Balsamic Glaze

After what I just shared, you’d think that I would be posting a crazy comfort food dish today for Single Serving Sunday (like a single serving deep dish chocolate chip cookie maybe?). It almost happened and I am sure it will in the future but for now I chose an easy recipe that took less time and ingredients to prepare. You simply bake a chicken breast with fresh peach slices and then top with a balsamic reduction. The peaches help keep the chicken moist and the balsamic glaze seals the deal. Garnish with some fresh basil if you have it!

Needs more than one serving? Thankfully this is simple enough to multiply. Just add more breasts to a larger baking dish, add more sliced peaches, and multiple the balsamic! It’s a great dish no matter how many servings you need. Another great savory peach dish are these goat cheese stuffed burgers topped with basil, bacon, and peaches.

Make it even easier:

If you don’t want to take the 5 minutes to make your own, feel free to pick some balsamic glaze up at the grocery store. It should be located right next to the regular balsamic vinegar.

The chicken was very nice – we enjoyed it. However, I think it would have been better fresh out of the oven. When I mentioned that to my husband, he was very glad to hear that I had more nectarines (the peaches we get here are awful). He wants me to make it again. I served it with steamed green beans, with the balsamic drizzle over all. A very satisfying recipe, indeed!

Erin, I fixed this tonight, but wasn’t smart enough to figure out that I needed to cook it longer for two people… It smells wonderful, though. As part of our substitute dinner we had beer. I wish we’d been able to have the chicken because one of the beers we tried would go so perfectly with it. If you like beer, it is Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero (a chocolate stout). Even if you are not a stout drinker, this one would be perfect with this chicken. Oh, what could have been… I’m really looking forward to having the chicken tomorrow night. My husband smelled it and thought it smelled divine – and he almost NEVER does that. The only other time I heard him say anything like that was about the pizza at Snake River Brewing Co. in Jackson Hole WY, when he said he thought he’d died and gone to heaven. First time I ever heard him be effusive about any food. So your chicken is the second one he has been excited about, and he hasn’t even tasted it yet. Good on ya’ (to quote Aussies)! We are really excited about tasting it tomorrow evening. Since I’m sure we’re going to like it, I congratulate you on a great recipe. (BTW, I was just looking at your recipe list and didn’t realize you had so many savory recipes. I’ll be checking them out.)
