Keeping things colorful and easy today with this Pesto Peach Chicken in White Wine with Burrata. Lightly breaded chicken seared in browned butter until golden with sweet summer peaches and a savory white wine pan sauce. The chicken is finished with creamy burrata cheese and basil pesto. It’s simple but mouthwatering and made in just under thirty minutes.

Summer is officially here and somehow we are more than halfway through June. All the more reason for me to embrace summer produce and super simple dinners more than ever. Our forecast for the next ten days is mostly sunny with a few clouds here and there. This means that, just like you, I really want to be limiting my time inside cooking. But I also don’t want to sacrifice good food…and we don’t have to!

One of the many things that I love so much about this time of year is the produce that’s available to us. It’s so flavorful and colorful that it doesn’t need a lot of the “extra” stuff to make it extra delicious.

That brings me to this chicken. It’s relatively simple, but full of summer flavor, herbs from the garden, and in-season peaches.

More times than not peaches are used in a sweet way, which I love (I’ll be making this peach crisp all summer long). But I also love to switch things up a bit and use peaches in savory summer dinners as well. This is one of those recipes you just need to trust me on and give something new a try.

Here are the details – it all starts with the chicken

You’ll need chicken breast cutlets and a bit of butter. Dredge the chicken through a beaten egg and then toss it in a mix of flour and rosemary to coat. I LOVE rosemary and peaches, but fresh thyme would be great too.

Once the chicken is prepped, slice the peaches and get them all ready to go. This dish cooks pretty fast, so I find it helpful to have everything pre-prepped before I start cooking the chicken.

The secret to this chicken is all in the butter. It’s pan-seared in a mix of olive oil and butter, which allows the chicken to form a nice golden crust on the outside. Using thin chicken cutlets is also key. The thin chicken cooks evenly and browns nicely in a short amount of time. If you have a hard time finding cutlets, try using chicken tenders.

Once the chicken is crispy and the butter browned, add in a splash of wine and a squeeze of lemon to create a really nice pan sauce. Then remove the skillet from the heat and add the peaches plus a small drizzle of honey. The honey helps the peaches caramelize in the oven. Now place the entire skillet into the oven and broil for a minute, just until the peaches are warmed and slightly charring on the edges.

Now the cheese – my favorite part

As soon as I pull the skillet out of the oven, I break the burrata cheese over the peaches, add the pesto, and then let everything sit for about five minutes. As the cheese sits, it melts over the warm peaches and chicken becoming perfectly melty. And of course so delicious.

The pesto just adds another wonderful layer of summer flavor. Making this dish this time of year, with all the fresh garden basil, really is the best.

Finish it up

As always, serve the chicken topped with lots and lots of fresh basil. And done, dinner in less than thirty minutes and with very little effort.

I love to serve this directly out of the skillet since it’s so visually pretty. You can enjoy this with just about much any side dish you love. But crusty bread is highly recommended for soaking up the extra sauce in the skillet.

Such a fun and easy recipe jump into simple summer cooking, right?

And most importantly, it’s just really good. The chicken soaks up all that delicious browned butter sauce. It’s perfectly seasoned with fresh rosemary and lemon. And the peaches make the entire dish feel extra special and so summery.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the broiler. Place the egg and flour in separate shallow bowls. Toss the rosemary with the flour.
    2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge both sides of the chicken through the egg, and then through the flour, tossing to coat. Place the chicken on a plate.
    3. In an oven safe skillet, melt together 3 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the chicken and cook until the bottom side is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip the chicken and add 3 tablespoons butter, swirling the butter around the chicken. Cook, basting the chicken in butter until the chicken is cooked and golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
    3. Reduce the heat to medium low and pour in the wine and lemon juice. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, arrange the peaches around the chicken. Drizzle the peaches with honey, salt and chili flakes (if desired). Broil 1 minute, until the peaches are softened.
    4. Break the burrata over the peaches and chicken. Spoon the pesto over the entire skillet. Let sit 5 minutes to warm the cheese. Serve topped with lots of fresh basil. Enjoy!

Notes

Cultured Butter: If you can find it, use cultured butter. It's fermented for 20 hours then churned to 82% butterfat. This provides the butter with an incredibly rich taste and higher smoke point, making it ideal for browning. I love using Vermont Creamery's Cultured Butter.

    I made this recipe a few times and it is so quick, so easy and sooooo delicious! I make always a bit more sauce so we can dip our fresh bread in it.

    Made this tonight, 9/25/21. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Loved the combination of the chicken, peaches and burrata! It was definitely different for us in a good way. My husband actually ate the leftover sauce with a spoon!

    1. Hi Veronica,
      Happy Sunday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner. Thanks a lot for giving it a try! xTieghan

  3. This was delicious and easy! My family loved it!! 5 Stars!! Will make again, and soon! I just need to figure out a different fruit, as peaches are no longer in season. =(

    1. Hi Jane,
      Happy Sunday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner. Thanks a lot for giving it a try! Pears or apples would be a great option now that peaches are no longer in season. xTieghan

      1. This was absolutely amazing!!! I cook for a few families every Tuesday and several of them said this was their favorite dinner I’ve made! Wondering if during the winter canned or frozen peaches would work. Anyone tried?

        1. Hey Barb,
          I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, I truly appreciate you giving it a try!! Either of those would be just fine to use:) 🍁 xTieghan

  4. Any ideas for storing or freezing leftovers? Obviously not the burrata (if only that cheese didn’t suffer from Cinderella syndrome and turn back into mozzarella!), but could you freeze the chicken and peaches?

  5. 5 stars
    I finally made this as peach season is coming to an end.
    It was fantastic! Great flavors of the rosemary, white wine, lemon and sweet peaches. And, burrata makes everything taste better. Hubby said it was his favorite thing I’ve made in awhile.

  6. I just made this recipe. It was astounding . I could not get the cheese here in South Africa so replaced it with good quality feta
    Definitely will make again. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    This was SO delicious! I didn’t have pesto and was too lazy to make it so I just dumped a ton of fresh basil on top. Served over rice. This was probably my favorite meal I cooked all year.

    😍😍😍🍑🍑🍑 fantastic dish. Substituted brown sugar for the honey because I didn’t have any honey. This meal was DELISH. Soaked up the saucy goodness with some sourdough. I will definitely be making this again.
