In addition to being high in vitamin C and fiber, plums pack potent antioxidants, which may help protect against heart disease and cancer.

Chicken with Plum Chutney

Source: Everyday Food, September 2006

Ingredients

  • 4 (6 to 8 ounces each) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno chile, (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired), chopped
  • 4 red plums, (about 1 pound), halved, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium. Add chicken and cook until opaque throughout, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Set aside.

  2. Make chutney: To skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, onion, and jalapeno; cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; add plums, sugar, vinegar, curry powder, ginger, and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until plums are softened and liquid is slightly syrupy, about 8 minutes.

  3. Add chicken and any juices that have accumulated on plate; simmer until heated through, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve chicken with chutney spooned on top.

    Very yummy. Changed it up a bit for our family. And that we didn't have any plums on hand.
    Used two large peaches, doubled the ginger (freshly grated) and didn't add the jalapeno to the kids portion. Used fresh ground black pepper instead.

    Easy to fix nice sweet and tangy, with the plum added great taste and texture.

    I totally agree w/ neydelle

    why the comments when the recipes have yet to be tried by the "commenter"? it's just chicken with sauce--easy to make and not time-consuming. and by the way, it WAS delicious. no leftovers, just the way i like it, and 2 of the diners were my 6 and 7 yr old granddaughters who usually prefer mac-and-cheese to anything grownups prefer. neydelle, next time try the recipe before you whine about it...

  • lovemybilly 16 Jul, 2008

    can you use dried plums (prunes) in place?

  • dottikins 16 Jul, 2008

    Hi, From where I come from half of these recipes are not everyday meals including this one.
