Two for Tuesday Peach Chutney and Chicken Sliders with Peach Chutney

Making your own peach chutney is easy. Brew up a batch to spread on toast, sandwiches or use as a dip.

Chutney – ewww!  That was what I use to think about chutney.  I had this picture in my mind about some mushy fruit with a lot of raisins in it.  I HATE RAISINS!!  It just seemed so unappealing to me. Boy, was I wrong.  I had no idea what I had been missing until my hubby turned me onto chutney.  Chutney is very prevalent in India and Indian food and I soon fell in love with it.

Even after I came to terms with my love of chutney, I was very reluctant to make my own.  I thought it would be so much work but when we ran out of chutney one day and couldn’t find the particular one at the store, I knew I had to get over it and make it.  It turned out to be so easy and chutney fits really well into a low-calorie, low-fat diet.  Chutney adds a big boost of flavor to sandwiches, eggs, toast, fish, dip for french fries – anything.  I now have 2 flavors in my repertoire and am ready to expand.

You can really make this with any fruit.  As we live in Georgia, I had to take advantage of the fabulously sweet Georgia peaches.  If you get ripe peaches, the skin will really just slip off.  The chutney would be great with mango also.  You can make your own Major Grey’s Chutney rather than paying all that money for a little bottle.  Feel free to add more jalapeno if you like it hotter, switch out the cinnamon for cumin or coriander and you would have a totally different flavor.  Go crazy with chutney!.

  • 1 tsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and minced
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 4 peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions and jalapeno and saute until just translucent. Stir in salt, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and nutmeg, continuing to stir for 1 minute.
  2. Stir peaches, brown sugar and cider vinegar into onions. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Peaches should still be a little chunky but soft. If you would like the chutney to be less chunky, go ahead and mash it a little.
  3. Take off the heat and add the lemon juice and cilantro.

      Thank you so much Patti. I am really glad you told me how you found me also. I just started putting my recipes on My Recipe Magic. I am very happy to meet you and hope you enjoy Food Done Light.
  2. Is there something I can substitute for the jalapenos? I don't really eat hot foods, so I can't handle it, haha.
  3. This looks delicious. I'm allergic to cilantro. Can I leave it out or substitute something?

      Hi Jocelyn, It will last for about a week in the refrigerator. I also have frozen leftovers without a problem. Hope you enjoy it.
