Ingredients

For chicken:

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • ½ cup peach preserves all natural, no sugar added preferred
  • ½ jalapeño pepper seeded and finely diced

For peaches:

  • 2 ripe peaches sliced ¼ inch thick (skin removed if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

For serving, optional:

  • 3 cups cooked white or brown rice
  • corn salsa
  • crumbled goat cheese
  • Additional cilantro for garnish optional
  • Slice avocado optional
  • sour cream

Instructions

For chicken:

  • Place chicken in slow cooker
  • Whisk together sauce, preserves and jalapeños
  • Pour half over chicken and reserve remaining in fridge
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with forks
  • Add remaining BBQ a little at a time until you have the amount of sauce you desire on the chicken
  • Discard cooking liquid and return chicken to slow cooker to keep warm, if desired

For peaches:

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat (preferably not non-stick)
  • Add peaches and let cook for about 2-3 minutes
  • Sprinkle with brown sugar and stir to coat
  • Make sure to flip peaches once to cook evenly on each side until nicely browned and softened but watch them closely so that they don't burn or get mushy. They should take about 6-7 minutes total.
  • Serve bowls with rice, chicken, salsa, peaches, sour cream and goat cheese
