Just Plum!


In last weeks farm box were 6 plums, that never ripened enough to be eaten.
Not wanting to throw them out I decided to experiment and use them in a dish.
A friend did cook this recipe before I put it in the blog and she felt the plum sauce did not thicken enough for her.
It’s not very crucial to have the sauce really thick, it’s the flavor that counts so don’t overthink it too much!

1 chicken breast per person
4-6 small plums
1 tbs balsamic vinegar

1-2 cups chicken stock, enough to cover plums and chicken
pepper, salt and 2 cloves garlic
1 tsp curry powder

Cut plums in 4 parts
Cover bottom of crock-pot with plums, one layer of chicken breast and cover with the balsamic vinegar and broth.
Add salt, curry powder, pepper and garlic.

Let simmer on high for 2 hours and low for another 2.5 hours.
Turn the chicken after you have cooked it for 2 hours.
The plum sauce should thicken some, if it looks too thick add a little broth.

Chicken will fall apart nicely.

I added sliced mushrooms 30 minutes before the time was over.

My boys ate this with rice.
