Stripling's Peach Preserves offer up both the peach flavor as well as a unique creamy texture to the recipe below for Polynesian Chicken. Although peaches have prominence here in Georgia as a stand-alone fruit, they also can lend a slightly tropical feel, giving meats a lighter, juicier taste.
- 2 1/2 lbs. meaty chicken pieces, skinned
- 1 (14 oz.) can crushed pineapple, un-drained
- 1 small (10 oz.) jar Stripling's Peach Preserves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a rectangular baking pan with vegetable oil cooking mist. Arrange the chicken pieces in the pan and spray lightly. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces and bake them for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain off the pan juices. Mix the pineapple juice with the Stripling's Peach Preserves. Pour over the drained chicken and bake another 15-20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
