With only $4.43 left in this month’s pre-tax minimum wage budget, I had to get creative with what I had on hand for today’s new recipe. Thanks to some plums my mother picked up yesterday at the wonderful Polk’s Farm Market in Medora, I figured I could use the sauce from this recipe with chicken.
Rather than baking the meat like the original recipe called for, I made a couple servings of the balsamic vinegar/plum sauce (rather than cook it, I placed all the ingredients directly in the blender for this part) and marinated the chicken for a couple of hours in it. When dinner time came, I cooked the chicken at a low/medium heat on the stove. Meanwhile, I followed the recipe for the extremely tasty sauce that topped the chicken.
While the chicken was good, the sauce in this recipe is definitely fantastic and definitely a keeper.
