Chicken Thighs with Homemade Plum Sauce

Sharing is caring!

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and most are dairy free. If this is your first visit to my blog? WELCOME! I have revamped my diet in order to create a healthier me. So far it is working. I used to be exhausted all the time. I could wake up and still feel I needed more than just sleep. It is this dragging feeling where you are not really experiencing life but just going through the motions. If you feel like this I am sorry. It is miserable. I hope that you will be able to find renewed energy as well. The revamp of my diet has given me back my energy. This is just my personal experience with this diet change.

I used to have plum sauce in my pantry. But not anymore as it contains many items I can’t have. This is my version of a Japanese Plum Sauce. I recently went to a local Farmer’s Market and purchased beautiful and tasty plums. I bought yellow plums and purple plums. The yellow plums I ate as they were super tasty. The purple plums I brought home and made a plum jam with them.

This is a savory plum sauce and gives this dish an Asian taste. Make this with Fried Cabbage.

  2. Nice ! Plums are so versatile. I realized when we were at my uncle’s estate last month and my son would pluck off basketfuls each morning. There i saw folks do so much with plums that i could never have imagined 🙂

    1. Plums are very versatile. Plus there are so many varieties and now with plumcots such a wide variety of colors and flavors. My husband’s grandmother who was in her hundreds (20 years ago) use to make lots of things with plums. She has since passed. It’s always good to chat with you, my friend. Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by! May your day/night be wonderful and blessed!

      1. always a pleasure 🙂
