Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper.

Heat a large sauce pan over med-high heat.  Lightly coat bottom of pan with oil and add seasoned chicken.  Cook on both sides until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan. Repeat process with any remaining chicken.  Keep chicken covered on plate until ready to return to pan.

Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 teaspoon butter.  When melted add diced onion, carrot, celery and bell pepper to pan.  Cook for 2 minute.   Add the red rice and garlic. Stirring toast lightly, or 3 minutes.  Slowly add the wine and cook until reduced by half, scraping the bits on bottom of pan.  Stir in chicken stock and parsley.   Cover and cook for 10 minutes.  Remove lid carefully.

Place the reserved chicken on top of the rice.  Cover with peaches. Replace lid.  Allow to cook for another 10 minutes.   Or until rice and chicken are cooked.  Add more chicken stock or water if needed.

Toss Cauliflower with marinade.  Start by drizzling around edges of bowl tossing cauliflower, then repeat..  This will help marinade to distribute evenly.
