Plum Sauce Chicken

You thought you had tried all of the marinating and basting sauces you can possibly try on your chicken, well think again because I am pretty much sure a lot of you out there haven’t tried plum sauce yet, I too had just recently learned about this sauce. If that statement is correct then you are lucky because you can try it out now using this recipe, a sweet, savoury, spicy with a bit of kick from the chillies, this chicken dish is something to die for. The plums give it a really nice fruity sweet flavour while helping the chicken in tenderizing it giving it a nice all-around texture. Like honey soy chicken this dish is a crowd please so make sure when you serve it to your guest add to your ingredients list lots of paper towels as it can really get messy.
