Chicken with Peach-Jalapeño Salsa

  • FAST
  1. 2 large peaches—peeled, pitted and cut into 1/3-inch dice
  2. 1 medium jalapeño chile, seeded and minced
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  4. 2 teaspoons sugar
  5. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  7. 3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  8. 1 tablespoon salt
  9. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  10. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  11. 4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  12. 6 tablespoons peanut oil, for frying
  1. In a bowl, combine the peaches, jalapeño, lime juice and sugar.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, bread crumbs, cornmeal, salt, thyme and cayenne. Put the chicken in a bowl of cool water. Remove the breast halves one at a time, let the excess water drip off and coat them thoroughly with the seasoned flour mixture.
  3. Heat 1/4 cup of the oil in a large heavy skillet. Add the chicken, skinned side down, and cook over moderately high heat until golden on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn the breasts and add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Cook, turning occasionally, until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 11 minutes longer. Serve with the peach-jalapeño salsa.
