Jalapeño Cheddar Corn Fritters with Chipotle Aioli.
One skillet Prosciutto Balsamic Peach Chicken with creamy burrata cheese, fresh basil, roasted garlic, and caramelized shallots. All served in a delicious balsamic white wine pan sauce…for good measure. It doesn’t get simpler, more summery, or more delicious than this crispy prosciutto chicken. All you need is one skillet, 30 minutes, and fresh in-season summer ingredients. Great any night of the week with a side of buttery orzo and crusty bread for soaking up that pan sauce and creamy, melty burrata cheese.
As promised, a simple summery skillet dinner for your Monday night meal. I mentioned this on Friday, but I’ve been waiting all summer for some beautiful, perfectly ripe peaches to finally arrive, and thankfully they did! Couldn’t be more excited about them. I spent some time yesterday working on a couple new recipes I’ll be sharing soon. I got a box of fresh, sweet peaches from Frog Hollow Farms in California and have been quickly making my way through them.
Delicious, and so pretty.
When food happens to be both pretty and delicious, it makes me so excited. It keeps me inspired to continue creating! It’s funny, I can feel like I sometimes have no new ideas, but then something like the prettiest peach or summer tomato shows up and I’m instantly inspired again and filled with ideas.
Anyway, I shared this easy peach upside cake last week, and this week I’m switching it up and using peaches in a savory way. Enter this easy skillet dinner that’s a great way to use up those late summer peaches that are always extra sweet and delicious. Perfect for these August nights and all the way into September.
I realize it might feel odd to throw peaches into such a savory dish, but trust me, roasted peaches with a little salty prosciutto, chicken, and creamy cheese are delicious. If you’ve made my rosemary peach chicken and enjoyed it, you will love this recipe too!
So on that note, did any of you happen to hit your local farm stand for peaches this weekend? Did you bake up anything good? Hoping you have some on your counter today because this is the perfect easy Monday night dinner. It’s balanced, quick to put together, and of course delicious.
It all starts with an oven-safe skillet or roasting pan. I highly recommend my go-to Staub 12-inch cast-iron skillet. It’s the perfect pan for this recipe…and it’s extra pretty too.
Just be sure to use a pan that can go from the oven to the stove. You’ll roast the chicken in the oven, but then finish the pan sauce on the stove. This is why cast iron is ideal, but any roasting pan or stainless steel pan will also work. If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, no problem. Just roast the chicken and peaches in a roasting pan, then make the sauce in a separate pan on the stove.
Ok, onto the chicken. This chicken is savory, salty, and so freaking good. Here’s why…each chicken breast is spread with fig preserves and wrapped in prosciutto. I know it sounds odd to use the fig preserves, but trust me, the combination of jammy fig preserves, salty prosciutto, and then the sweet peaches are truly delicious. The jam just gives the chicken a little extra special touch. If you prefer not to use it, you could omit completely or try using apple butter instead.
Quickly bake the chicken with shallots, garlic, thyme, and a couple of fresh peaches. As the chicken cooks, the prosciutto crisps, and the peaches slowly begin to char on the edges becoming even more sweet and delicious.
Once the prosciutto is crisp, remove the chicken and peaches from the skillet and transfer to a plate so you can make a quick balsamic sauce.
It’s a simple a mix of balsamic vinegar and white wine. The sauce cooks down with the roasted garlic and shallots and turns into a flavorful glaze/sauce.
When spooned over the chicken, peaches, and burrata it’s absolutely mouthwatering. Think Caprese salad, but minus the tomatoes, and with crispy prosciutto chicken and peaches.
Simple, Italian flavors, but with a summery twist.
So how do you serve this? Well, first things first. I like to add the burrata right overtop the warm chicken so it can melt into the dish, becoming warm and even creamier. Again, mouthwatering and beyond good.
As a simple side, I really love making orzo pasta and serving with crusty bread to mop up the burrata and balsamic sauce. A side salad of garden greens would be great too! Just keep it simple and let the chicken really shine.
Best any night of the week dinner that would easily be perfect for a low key backyard dinner with friends.

Wow. This was absolutely delicious. One of my favorite recipes for sure!
Wonderful!! Love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks for sharing your review and making the recipe!! xTieghan
What are your thoughts on grilling the chicken and making the peach sauce on the stove?? Also…do I make orzo plain, or add anything to it?
Sure, sounds like a great idea!! The orzo is totally up to you:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx
Made this last night and it was amazing. I overcooked my chicken going 20 minutes instead of 15 but that is totally on me. I felt like it was ready. The flavors were incredible. I will make this one again for sure!
Thanks so much for your comment! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks so much for making it! xTieghan
Amazing! I usually tweak recipes at least a little when I make them. The only thing I changed was I greased my pan with butter instead of olive oil, can’t go wrong there in my opinion. The recipe is spot on in flavor and execution, make sure you have ripe peaches or nectarines (which is what I had available currently). Delicious and a huge hit with the family, and will be in the dinner rotation! Thank you!
Happy Friday!! Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a go, I love to hear that it was enjoyed!! xTieghan
I made this for a dinner party and it was amazing, everyone loved it. The recipe was very easy to follow and didn’t take long. I’m a novice cook and it was easy for me. Thank you!!!
Awesome!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xTieghan
This was absolutely amazing! I made it for my future mother in law & her husband, and we all loved it! This is definitely a repeat recipe for me.
Awesome!! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for giving it a try! xTieghan
Mozzarella is terrible substitute!!! It is dry compared to the pics of barrata & clumps. Leave it for pizza & lasagna.
Will try this again- but not until peaches are in season again- it is way late. I would not advise unless the peaches are very ripe- they will still be very hard in only 30 minutes in oven. Yuck.
So sorry you did not enjoy the recipe, please let me know if I can help in anyway! xTieghan
I made this for the last home dinner before moving my son into his freshman dorm. I substituted nectarines and figs for the peaches and omitted the burrata because that was already in our salad. It was a huge hit and will create a great memory of ‘moms home cooking’ while he’s away at school. Thank you Tiegan!
Fantastic! I am delighted to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try! Have the best week:) xTieghan
What could substitute for the white wine and fig? Thanks!
You could use chicken broth in place of the wine and honey in place of the fig jam. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
Second time I have made this recipe and we still love it! Substituted the peaches for nectarines since we had fresh ones and just as tasty!
I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try! xTieghan
Is there a fish or seafood that I can use instead of chicken?
A mild white fish would be fantastic here. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
The flavors were fabulous, but the chicken turned out dry —that’s on me, so I’m sharing the why and how for others. My chicken breasts were large, and even though I halved them horizontally, they were still quite thick. I checked them at 15 minutes with an instant read and they were a little under—about 150-154. So I gave them 5 more minutes. After the broil and the 1 minute simmer in the sauce, they were over-done, 175-180. Next time I will stop the bake when they are still a little under to compensate for the additional heat. But the dish really tasted delicious!
Happy Monday! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a try! xxTieghan
