  • 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.

  • 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.

Cook's Notes

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

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.

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...
