Well hello there all you rocky point times faithful readers, this is your friend and chef mickey here. I am in Mexico city on a business trip, and from here i am heading to Guadalajara to wrap up my trip before heading home to my beautiful rocky point. Ok, here’s your monthly recipe.

chicken in Chinese plum sauce….
(this recipe calls for breast meat, but i really love the dark meat)

1/4 cup butter
6 chicken breast halves – skinned
1 (16 oz) can Chinese plum sauce (or homemade plum sauce )
salt and pepper to taste

homemade plum sauce….
14 oz can plums – drained and pitted
1/3 cup of orange marmalade
1/3 teaspoon tabasco sauce
1 tbl spoon soy sauce
1 tbl spoon vinegar
1/4  tsp ground ginge
1 small and minced garlic clove
combine all ingredients in blender or food processor and whirl until pureed,
cover and refrigerate untill ready to use. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of sauce

dot bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with butter.  PLACE Chicken breasts, bone side down, in baking dish and spoon plum sauce over top.  BAKE At 375 degrees for about half an hour or until the chicken is tender, but make sure you are basting frequently (that’s the key to fresh and juicy chicken)

Garnish this wonderful plum chicken with a nice sticky white rice and some asparagus with soy sauce yummmmmmmmmmmmmm
there you have it

I really hope you will enjoy this recipe like i did. Don’t forget to stop by and see us on sandy beach at chef mickeys place.
