LOOKING for: Another chicken recipe

barb1954May 9, 2008

I'm looking for a recipe for Plum Good Chicken. The only recipes I could find were for plum jam, but the recipe I misplaced calls for plums in a jar.

I don't know if this is the one you're looking for:


Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook/Bake Time: 15 Minutes
Servings: 4

 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
 1 1/2 teaspoons Jamaican jerk seasoning, divided
 3 tablespoons butter, divided
 1 cup orange juice
 1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) coarsely chopped dried plums
 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
 1 tablespoon lime juice

Rub 1 teaspoon of the jerk seasoning onto chicken breasts.

In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat until melted.

Add chicken; cook 10 minutes or until done, turning once.

Remove chicken to serving platter; keep warm.

Add remaining jerk seasoning, remaining butter, orange juice, dried plums, bell pepper and lime juice to skillet.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.

Spoon over chicken.

Here's another one with green beans:



1 1/4 lbs Chicken thighs
1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
3 Gree onions
1 tbsp Olive oil
1/2 cup Chicken broth
1/2 cup Plum jam
2 tbsp Basmaic vinegar
12 oz Green beans
1pkg Heat and serve precooked brown rice


1. Toss thighs with 5 spice powder and 1/2 tsp salt. From dark-green end of onions, finely chop enough for two tbsp; reserve for garnish. Cut remainder of onions into 1 in pieces, set aside.

2. In 12-in skillet, heat oil on med-high until hot. Add thighs and cook 10 min or until they're browned and lose their pink color, turning once. Transfer thighs to plate, cover to keep warm.

3. In drippings in skillet, on med, cook 1- inch onion pieces 4 min or until lightly browned. Stir in broth, jam and vinegar; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to med and cook 3-4 min or until sauce is syrupy. Return chicken to skillet and turn to coat with sauce.

4. Cook beans and rice as labels direct; serve with chicken; sprinkled

Here's one for plum glazed chicken that calls for 16 oz of plums, pitted.

Can you describe the recipe more?

Here is a recipe I found for braised chicken breast with a plum sauce that uses canned plums.

Most of the recipes I found also had plum jam, soy sauce, orange juice and honey. Is this the type of sauce you are looking for? Maybe you can cook and reduce some of the juice from canned plums and add chopped plums to those basic recipes.
