  • 1.4 lb chicken thighs boneless skinless
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder or more
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 2 yellow peaches medium size, thoroughly washed, cored, and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons honey or more
  • ½ lemon (half a lemon freshly squeezed or more)
  • 2 tablespoons butter


How to cook chicken

  • Season chicken thighs with chili powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Heat the same (now empty) cast-iron skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. This allows the cast-iron skillet to heat through.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add chicken thighs. Cook the chicken on medium heat for 5 minutes, without moving it. This allows the chicken to sear.
  • Flip the chicken thighs over, reduce heat to low-medium, and cook for about 5 more minutes or longer until it's cooked through. Remove from heat.
  • Remove chicken from skillet.

How to cook peaches

  • To the same skillet, on medium heat, add sliced peaches and slightly cook them, without overcooking, - about 5 minutes.
  • At the very end, add honey, lemon juice, and butter. Stir


  • Add back the cooked chicken nestled in between the peaches. Reheat briefly. Remove from heat.
  • Top with fresh thyme.
