Chicken Baked with Peaches Thyme and Dijon, dinner #4 from frugal chicken thighs!

Who is looking for a new, delicious oven meal that everyone will like? If so Chicken Baked with Peaches Thyme and Dijon is calling your name! Quick to assemble, easy hands-off baking, and the family will love it!


Sometimes when I am the most tired, I am able to come up with the tastiest of dishes. Not always mind you, but often, thankfully! Based on preference and ease of long-term freezer storage, boneless, skinless chicken thighs grace our table often. By default, they are often taken out to thaw for our supper. Even though, having a specific recipe in mind is not always the case...


With that said out loud, I am pleased to offer this easy and delicious recipe. It is not fancy, but often the simplest of ingredients combined make a great meal. One you will serve again and again. And Chicken Baked with Peaches Thyme and Dijon goes perfectly with Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes

Both of these dishes are "walk away" easy. Allowing you to complete other chores or better yet, take a moment for yourself...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • chicken thighs
  • canned peaches
  • thyme leaves
  • garlic salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • dijon mustard
You will also need the following:
  • baking pan
  • measuring spoons
  • liquid measuring cup
Now we are ready to begin!

  2. Yummy dish here. I sometimes wrap a piece of bacon over a chicken piece and add a dollop of peach jam. It carmelizes. Thanks for your recipe!

  3. I like chicken with fruit; my husband not so much, but when the peaches are in season, I'll give this a try anyway.

  4. We used to do Apricot Chicken back in the 80s but never did peaches. I am not sure my husband would like this. He struggles with fruit in main meals at the best of times.

    1. Boy do I understand about pleasing family members who share our table. Fruit and meat is a deal breaker for many, so I understand. I think this was a moment of low staples in the pantry and dinner needed to be made, and as it turned out, we enjoyed it very much.

    2. I have done chicken and pears but not peaches - we'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing

  5. What lovely flavours, Melynda. Peaches are a real favourite of mine and they go so well with the chicken and herbs. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Take care and have a lovely week ahead.
