Chicken with Peaches, Basil, and Tomatoes

Summertime in the South brings with it two of our favorite things peaches and tomatoes. While I still dont love biting into a whole tomato as much as I do a whole peach, I do love both of these fruits in so many preparations, and together they add a lovely sweet flavor to the chicken. Served over peppery arugula, this makes for a great weeknight meal in a flash. This recipe was inspired by a similar dish from Virginia Williss James Beard Awardwinning book, Lighten Up, Yall. JULIE
