Plum glazed chicken is a mildly natural sweeter variation on chicken. It’s also a great way to incorporate fruit into your daily diet.
Plums are available in many shapes, sizes and colors. The one I used was a dark purple, round version. But you may used whichever one you desire.
This beautiful and delicious fruit helps our bodies to better absorb iron. This is especially important for women since many women are low in iron. It’s high in vitamin C and fiber and therefore helps to make our immune system stronger. Plums are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin K and potassium.
So try this sweeter version of chicken from the usual savory and let me know how you liked it.
Plum Glazed Chicken:
Ingredients: Serves 1
- 1 4- 6 ounce chicken breast pounded to 1/2 inch thick
- salt and pepper to season
- 1 plum sliced into 1/4 inch slices
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon plum preserves
- 1 teaspoon water
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Slice the plum into 1/4 inch slices. Heat the oil in a a non stick skillet and when hot add the chicken and the plum slices. Cook for about 4 minutes over medium low heat. Turn the chicken and plum slices onto other side and cook an additional 4 minutes. In the meantime mix the plum preserves with the water. Pour over the chicken and cook for 1 more minute. This will serve as a nice glaze.
Serve with your favorite salad or just arugula with a little drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
