3 boneless chicken breasts (1 1/2 lbs)
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
12 basil leaves, finely chopped plus more for garnish
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
4 large peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced 1/4 inch thick (about 2 cups)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the chicken and cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and set aside.

Decrease the heat. Add the shallot and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant stirring constantly, 45 to 60 seconds. Add the chopped basil, chicken stock and peaches. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat. Transfer to the oven and bake until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a knife, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle fresh basil over the top, slice the chicken and serve.
