A Plum of a Chicken

Posted by Brette in Chicken

I’m back to regular posting on this blog, so look for a new recipe at least once a week!

Today’s is inspired by the bounty of stone fruits that are everywhere this time of year.

1/2 cup cooked couscous

1 chicken breast

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

1/8 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon thyme

1 plum, pit removed, cut into eighths

Place the couscous on the bottom of the parchment paper, roughly in the shape of the chicken breast. Top with chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on thyme and onion powder. Place the plum pieces on top of and around the chicken. Fold parchment (see Technique page of this blog) and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

The plum melds into the chicken and couscous and the entire package is simply beautiful to see and taste. And there’s no clean up of pots and pans (I usually make couscous in the microwave or in my rice cooker in big batches and freeze it, using it as needed).
