Delicious and Easy Chicken with Plums for all the family
This recipe is one I made up last week, when I went to the supermarket and found plums were back on the shelves. I always use chicken thighs as they hold the flavor so well and don't dry out. If your children don't like chili, then leave it out, although just a little is hardly decetable and adds a delicious edge to the flavors.
one chicken thigh per person
one plum per person, halved and stone removed
soy sauce, about 2 cups
3 garlic cloves chopped
one fresh chili chopped (or chili powder)
fresh ginger grated (or powdered ginger)
fresh cilantro to garnish
Place the chicken thighs in an oven tray and bake at 375F for 20 minutes. Add the chili, ginger and garlic and bake for a further 10 minutes. Next add the plum halves (I nestle two halves under each thigh) and liberally add the soy sauce. Bake for a further 10/15 minutes. Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes. During this time you can cook some noodles to accompany and a green vegetable if you want. Garnish with fresh cilantro to serve.
