Got peaches? Our peach crop wasn’t anything near great this year, but our two little peach trees did produce enough peaches that I could make a batch of spicy peach chutney. I am so glad I decided on the chutney for the use of our few peaches. This stuff is incredible and has a thousand uses!
My sous-chef dish-washing mom did all the peeling and slicing of the peaches.
My job was to tackle the green peppers, fresh out of the garden and …
chop up the sweet Vidalia onions!
I added garlic, chili powder, mustard seed, brown sugar, vinegar and raisins. All this is cooked over medium heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until the mixture thickens. The chutney is ladled into hot sterilized jars, sealed, and processed according to safe canning measures. Click HERE for canning procedures from PickYourOwn.org.
What to do with your peach chutney?
This isn’t just any ordinary chicken breast … this is peach chutney stuffed chicken breast.
I must beg your forgiveness for bragging but this dish is outstanding! You will find the chutney recipe below and soon I will post the stuffed chicken breast recipe.
In the meantime, Happy Cooking!

How much does this recipe make?
About six 1/2 pints. It may be a little more based on how much your peaches cook down. I have gotten 7 half-pints out of this recipe when I had a little more juice. Hope this helps!
This sounds delish! So nice to have your mom to help! What a blessing! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. My grand blessings are coming and we are making homemade ice cream for one of them turning 4.
How did the ice cream turn out? What kind did you make? Now that I have an ice cream attachment for my Kitchen Aid we are eating too much ice cream — and loving it! 🙂
