Ginger Plum Chicken is my version of a Chinese plum chicken.
My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. This dietary change for me is due to autoimmune illnesses. I used to be under the care of a western doctor. Now, I am under the care of a functional doctor and a western doctor. Due to eating this way my labs and blood work have come back as improved. My western doctor tells me that my diet and improved health are just coincidence. However, I used to be on several medications and have been able to go off of them due to improved blood work and health. Draw your own conclusions.
I am often researching and experimenting in my kitchen with ingredients that are new to me and maybe new to you as well. This recipe came about as one recipe that uses my Asian Sauce with Plums. I feel that it has a Chinese flavor. I can’t go out to Chinese restaurants anymore as I have yet to find one that is gluten free. I can’t have soy, gluten, wheat, rice or MSG. I miss Chinese food so desperately that I need to create my own recipes.
This recipe has a little heat. I am not a huge fan of spicy hot. I do like a little heat and in my humble opinon, this is a mild heat. My family thought it was a little spicier than I normally make. The Sichuan Peppercorns add a nice heat and oriental flavor. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did.
