25g butter
4 peaches, pitted, thickly sliced or halved
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 1/2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breast
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 shallot, chopped
1 (5cm) piece ginger, grated or minced
180ml chicken stock
2/3 cup peach preserves
2 tsps hot sauce (recommended: Frank's Red Hot)
2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1) Heat a medium skillet with the butter over medium heat. Add the peaches and lemon juice, and cook until tender and lightly golden, 10 minutes. Turn off the heat.

2) While the peaches cook, heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, a turn of the pan, in a large skillet over medium-high to high heat. Cut the chicken breasts in half across the centre of each breast to make four equal portions. Add the chicken breasts and thighs to the pan and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes, then remove to a plate and cover with foil.

3) Drizzle the pan with the remaining extra virgin olive oil, half a turn of the pan. Add the shallot and ginger, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the stock, preserves, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and season with black pepper, to taste. Cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes to thicken.

Arrange the chicken and peaches on a platter and douse with the peach sauce. Portions are one piece of light meat and one thigh per person.
