4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Plum Sauce (recipe below)
Non Stick spray or oil
Plum Sauce Recipe
2 cups fresh plums, pitted and diced
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed OR ½ cup Maple Syrup
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. ground ginger
2 Tbsp. soy sauce or Tamari
1 Tbsp. plum or apple jelly
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. pepper
For best flavor, prepare the plum sauce a day ahead of time.
Refrigerate until you're ready to bake the chicken breasts. You can also make the sauce just before baking the chicken.
Preheat oven to 375 (350 if you're using a ceramic or glass baking dish.)
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine plums, plum jelly,
cornstarch, and soy sauce. This with a slight amount of water (1/2 tsp at a time) if sauce seems too thick.
Stir in brown sugar. Add lemon
juice and ginger. Mix well by hand. Add garlic powder, onion
powder, and black pepper and stir until smooth.
Wash and pat dry chicken breasts. Coat each breast with plum sauce by dipping into sauce and turning over, then arrange breasts in non-stick or lightly oiled baking dish.
Spoon remaining plum sauce over chicken.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
