Stuffed Chicken Breast with Plum Sauce
I told you I would try the plum sauce from the Pork recipe on chicken and share. Well here you go. WOW was this delicious. I had some hash brown potatoes that Pasty sent home with me from our weekly game. So with thinking cap on I decided to stuff a bone in chicken breast with it and then roast it in the oven and baste it with the plum sauce (found here). I cut a pocket in the chicken on the thick side then held it closed with toothpicks (a cooks answer to duct tape..LOL)
It looks like it charred a bit but really it was really crunchy and yummy on those parts of the skin. Ya know how BBQ gets when it's cooked just right. I must say in this part of the country they don't really know how bbq should be cooked. They think smoking it then pouring sauce over it when it's done is bbq. NOT! But remember this is just my opinion. :) And see you can have the great taste without even having a bbq grille outside. All done in the oven.
