Rub chicken breasts with 1tsp of ginger, salt & white pepper. Bake @ 350 until juices run clear.


Melt a pad of butter @ med/high heat in a sauce pan. Add peaches, brown sugar, chili paste and the other tsp of ginger. Stir thoroughly. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 mins. Add 2tbsp corn startch to a half cup of warm water and stir until corn starch disolves. Add half of cornstarch mixture to peach sauce. Let the mixture thicken. If it's still not thick enough, then add the remaining cornstarch to the sauce and mix. Let the peach sauce continue to simmer.

When the chicken is done cooking, chop coarsely, then mix with peach sauce and let stand (no heat), for five minutes. Serve on it's own with sides, or over rice.
