  • Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut onion into small slivers and add onion to skillet. Sauté onions for about 3 minutes.
  • Season your chicken with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Sauté until golden brown, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and transfer to a plate. Note - your chicken will not be done.
  • While leaving the oil and onions in skillet, add 1 more teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and add garlic. Sauté onions and garlic for about 1 minute.
  • Add balsamic vinegar and the ground ginger and stir until liquid is reduced by half, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in honey and then add in fresh peaches and tomatoes. Add in more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return chicken to skillet, placing the chicken in the middle between the peaches and tomatoes. Cover skillet with lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Allow chicken and sauce to simmer until chicken has cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes. Ensure the temperature reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
  • Top with fresh basil.
