Almond Plum

So here is another chicken recipe; I am going to start calling these my cop-out blog posts, because they're easier to write up than a craft post.  No photos needed!  Anyway.

1 chicken breast
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp honey
a pinch of salt
a bunch of almonds (very specific!)
2 plums, not too ripe, cut to 1" pieces

Combine wine, water, and honey until the honey is dissolved.  Cube the chicken and let it marinate.  Grind the almonds until fairly fine; I used my little food processor and it worked great.  I mixed in the almonds just before I started cooking, and dumped everything into my skillet with a bit of olive oil.  Add plums once chicken is mostly cooked, and let everything simmer until the liquid is gone.  Then be like me, and completely forget about vegetables!  We're nomming this one right now with a carrot, half an onion, and cilantro rice, and it's really good!  Now I need to go stop typing and keep eating.


  1. I'm excited about all the chicken recipes posted here. I love the sound of this one. I love chicken but my husband isn't a huge fan, so I'm always looking for recipes like this that have a bunch of other ingredients he likes.

  2. This one turned out extremely well, even better than I expected! If you cut the chicken up into small cubes, maybe it will also be more appealing to him? Or at least, less gross?

    I bet this would make a pretty good beef dish too. My instinct would be to replace the white wine with a red, in that case, but I really have no reason to support that suggestion.

    If you do try any of the chicken things I've posted so far, I definitely recommend this one. The ground almonds were an amazing addition!
