Chrissy Teigen Loves This Pioneer Woman Recipe as Much as We Do

We love weeknight chicken recipes as much as the next gal, and we’ll often peruse one of Chrissy Teigen’s cookbooks or her new Cravings website for inspiration. We’ve also been known to binge-watch The Pioneer Woman to get ideas, and it looks like we’re not alone. It turns out that when Teigen needs a weeknight chicken recipe, she turns to The Pioneer Woman too, and she went to Twitter to share her favorite Pioneer Woman recipe.

After getting a jar of fancy Georgia peach jam from The Peach Truck, Teigen couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen to make The Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Peach Whisky Chicken.

It’s a flavorful, simple meal that requires just a little bit of time on the stovetop. Then, it’s braised in the oven at a low temp, until the chicken is falling off the bone and the sauce is rich and luxurious.

The sauce is made with peach preserves, barbecue sauce, and whiskey, and there are real peaches in the recipe too, which get soft, sweet, and tangy as they cook alongside the chicken.

It seems like Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman herself, was flattered that Teigen considers this one of her go-to weeknight chicken recipes.

On Twitter, Drummond commented on Teigen’s post, saying “I was about to add the peach emoji (alongside the yum/licking lips emoji) to this tweet, but my daughter told me that wasn’t such a good idea. Thank goodness she’s home from college right now.”

Saved by the daughter!

Peaches may not be in season right now, but we can’t be the only ones thinking of tracking some down so we can try this recipe out for dinner tonight, right? You could probably even use frozen peach slices in places of whole peaches if you can’t find any that are fresh – they’ll cook down in the sauce and become soft and luscious just like fresh fruit would.
