4 boneless-skinless chicken breasts
2 cups fresh plums, chopped
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. ginger
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. plum jelly
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. black pepper
Parsley as a garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375. The glaze for this recipe may be made the day before you plan to make this dish. It just will need to be refrigerated. If you use fresh plums, they will need to have the pits removed before using.
You can use canned or frozen varieties of this fruit if you want to. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the plums, the plum jelly, cornstarch, and the soy sauce. If the mixture is too dry, add a little water.
Now gradually add the brown sugar while stirring. Next, add the lemon juice and ginger. Continue mixing. Lastly, add the garlic and onion powder, and the black pepper. Once this plum glaze has been mixed well, it is ready to use.
Place each chicken breast, one by one, into the mixing bowl and cover each it with the plum glaze. Do this for each chicken breast. Then put the chicken breasts in a baking pan. You can add one more spoonful of plum glaze to each chicken breast before putting them in the oven if you wish. Bake this dish on 375 for 25-30 minutes.
