I am very proud of this recipe. Some friends were coming over for a barbecue and I wanted to grill chicken.. maybe with some barbecue sauce… but I had recently read an article about how much sugar there is in bottled barbecue sauces. I wanted to make my own but make it a bit different.. so, I decided to use the plums in the sauce. That would be the main flavor mixed in with some onion, garlic, orange juice and of course some smoked paprika. I added a bit of honey to balance the flavors and came up with a delicious sauce. I marinated the chicken in some spices and basted it with half of the sauce. I served the rest of the sauce with the cooked chicken. It tasted amazing… definitely try this sauce next time you are in the mood to grill…

  • 4 to 5 black plums, cut into 1 inch wedges
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • Salt

Heat a small saucepan with the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes on medium heat. Add the plums, orange juice, honey and smoked paprika. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Take off the heat and add to a blender till smooth. Transfer to a bowl and check for seasonings. Divide in half and use one half to baste steak and chicken and serve the other half with the cooked meat.
