Spiced chicken with ginger, peaches, and onions


The final dish


  •             1 bag (1 pound) frozen peaches, unthawed
  •             2 red onions, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  •             Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  •             2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger (peel skin easily with the back of a spoon)
  •             2 tablespoons soy sauce
  •            3 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as corn, or grape seed
  •             1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  •             1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, to taste
  •             8 bone-in skin-on chicken pieces, such as thighs and drumsticks
  •             Rice cooked for serving (hint: put a 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric into the cooking liquid for a complementary color)


Set your oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Into a large bowl, place peaches and onions. Season with salt and pepper. Add ginger, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, sesame oil, and red-pepper flakes; toss to coat. Turn this mixture out onto a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Rub chicken with remaining teaspoon vegetable oil; season all sides with salt and pepper. Arrange chicken skin side up among peaches and onions.

Roast until chicken registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of the meat (avoiding bone), 30 – 40 minutes. Serve chicken with rice, peaches/onion mixture.
