I have friends that are great cooks but also have kids so they come to develop a keen skill at making good food fast. In a baking dish put 8 chicken legs dump on top 1 can of peaches and 1 jar of salsa just for the pizzazze add 3 diced shallots. Stick the dish in the oven for 45min and "TA-DAH" . It's delicious, trust me! Serve with white rice.
