Baked chicken with pineapple and peaches

For those of us who are tired of cooking fried chicken all the time... here is something to try!!

I have made this dish a few times already and the kids really love it. It looks hard but actually, it's very easy to make.

You'll need:

4 chicken legs (you can use other parts)
1/4 tsp thyme 
Salt and pepper


1 small can of pineapple tidbits (about 1 cup)
1 cup sliced (canned peaches)
1/2 cup pineapple syrup ( from can)
1/4 cup peach syrup (from can)
1/2 tsp salt
1 bayleaf
2 tbsp ginger juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. vinegar
black pepper
2 cloves garlic minced

preheat oven to 380C (190F)

Rub the chicken with salt pepper and thyme. let stand 10 minutes. Combine the ingredients of the glaze in a pan and simmer until it thickens (about 10-15 mins). Remove from heat.

Heat a pan till smoking, add oil and sear both sides of the chicken well. Transfer to a baking dish and pour glaze over.

Bake for 30 mins. Serve.

I have to tell you. this is finger licking good! If you don't like it too sweet, you can omit the brown sugar and just stick with the canned juices. 

It works best over rice.. HMMM (this is when I was STILL eating rice...) now, I only get to cook this for my family. =(
