Some recipes are just winners right away. Others, I file under ‘well, we’ve tried it’ and never speak of them again. With peaches in season, I wanted to find a way to jazz up my chicken thighs and this recipe popped up.
I modified the original Pioneer Woman recipe to make it work for us – I made the BBQ sauce from scratch rather than using bottled stuff and adjusted some proportions but the end result is that I want to make this over and over again. Enjoy!
- 6 chicken thighs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1/2 cup Whiskey
- 1 cup BBQ sauce (recipe below)
- 3-4 peaches, peeled, diced
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/2 clove of garlic, chopped
BBQ Sauce Recipe
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup molasses

Combine above together. Add more vinegar or sugar as your tastes prefer.
