Plum Glazed Chicken

IMG_2077My friend, Carl Skalak, from Blue Pike Farm recently asked what could be done with plums and chicken. Carl raises chickens and grows these delicious little plums. I decided to pair them for dinner and here is what I came up with. Carl and I had it for dinner and he really enjoyed it. Simple to make and really made the meal special.

Plum Glaze

2 T. oil

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 qt. plums, washed, pitted and chopped coarsely

1/4 c. honey

1/4 c. red wine vinegar

1 t. hot sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in skillet and cook onion until tender. Add garlic and cook a few minutes longer. Toss in  plums, honey and vinegar and cook over medium heat until plums have cooked down and mixture has thickened. Add seasonings and set aside until ready to use.

Prepping the Chicken

I cut a chicken in half and placed it in a roasting pan. Baked it in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. I took it out of the oven and spooned over the plum glaze and returned the chicken to the oven for another 45 minutes. Basted the chicken with the glaze  and returned it to the oven for another 20 minutes. Served with fresh cole slaw. So tasty and tender. The meat had a richness – almost like duck.

The plums I used- I think they are called Methany. Really juicy.
