Saucy Chestnut-Plum Chicken


Soft, flavorful, and original. Can be used for an everyday supper, yet presentable enough for Shabbos.


Prepare the Saucy Chestnut-Plum Chicken

1. Spray the bottom of a six-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place onions and garlic on bottom. Arrange chicken pieces over the onion and garlic.
2. In a food processor fitted with the knife attachment, blend the plums, soy sauce, wine, silan, olive oil, maple syrup, and salt and pepper. Pour over the chicken, taking care that all pieces are covered in sauce. Lay the whole scallion over the chicken. Scatter the chestnuts all around.
3. Cook on high for one hour and then on low for three hours, or cook on low for four to five hours.


If fresh Hungarian plums aren’t available, sub drained canned plums. The taste will be slightly sweeter, but still very good.
