This is an elegant way to make use of a special last day of sale on chicken breasts. (Saved over $5 on the package.) It's kind of sweet and sour; sweet from the preserves and the plums and sour from the bit of vinegar. But what makes this dish are the fresh Thyme sprigs and garlic.
Split chicken breasts (approx 3 lbs.)
7oz package dried plums, pitted (prunes)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar balsamic
3 pinches salt
grinds of black pepper Sprigs fresh Thyme
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Now you can prepare up to this point and cover tightly to refrigerate overnight if you wish to have the work done early.
