Baked Chicken with Creamy Peach Sauce



I know it sounds crazy but Hey! Sometimes it’s the crazy meals that come out the best!

I will be totally honest. I was nervous while making this dish. The recipe I was playing around with was just not going to work. I was going to have to modify it way too much so I just starting “winging it.”

I had a brief moment of hesitation when I dropped a dollop of Ricotta in a hot skillet with peaches. “This could end very poorly,” I thought to myself. It didn’t…it ended beautifully! At first I thought maybe I was so hungry I just thought it was delicious. But when Mr. W loved it too…I knew my risky business had paid off :)
