Chicken Breasts with Glazed Peaches and Fennel and Corn Muffins in Poblano Cups
- Cooking spray
- 1 box corn muffin mix (recommended: Jiffy)
- 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
- 1 (7-ounce) jar chopped pimentos
- 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
- 6 poblano peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup sliced red onion
- 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
- 4 roasted chicken breast halves
- 1 (14-ounce) can peaches, undrained
- 1 tablespoon freshly chopped rosemary leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions, adding cheese, pimentos and cilantro when you add other ingredients. Arrange poblano pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and fill each pepper with an equal amount of corn muffin mix.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in 1 muffin comes out clean.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and fennel and saute 3 to 5 minutes, until soft. Add chicken, peaches and rosemary and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, until chicken is heated through and sauce thickens.
Serve chicken with poblano corn muffins on the side.
