Chicken, Plum and Chilli Tray Bake

Happy Friday!! This morning's post is short and sweet to share one of the dishes that I made recently.  This was Chicken, Plum and Chilli Tray Bake out of the March 2018 Coles magazine. There are haters of meat and fruit combinations but I am not one of them, and I was excited to find another good plum recipe while plums are still in season (because that autumn chill is definitely in the air).

I used a green chilli instead of a red chilli because my little Woolworths Metro had no red chillies when I went to buy the ingredients - go figure.  However, I have become very lazy with the supermarket so close and I wasn't going anywhere else to get that red chilli. The flavours have a terrific Asian slant, with soy, oyster sauce, star anise, chilli, ginger, orange and plum.

I enjoyed the flavours of this dish, but would have liked  a bit more sauce.  And of course, mine looks nothing like the photo (taken from the Taste website, which Coles seems to be in partnership with). 

If you are tempted to try this meat and fruit combination (ignoring my unglamourous rendition of this dish), you can find the recipe online here.  It was delicious (it's hard to stuff up baked chicken), just needed more sauce, as I said.

I like some fruit and meat combos, especially some fruit with chicken or pork!

I love fruit in savoury dishes but haven't cooked with plums. Thanks for the idea!

I love Chinese plum savoury meals and this looks yummy. Oh their pictures are very unrealistic. I made chicken, olive, lemon, garlic traybake with bone in thighs, chilli and fennel. Yum. What is it with no chillies? I have that problem too. Or the baby cukes. I am spoiled!!
