Great recipe! I had a plum tree in my yard. So, with an abundance of plums to work with, I came across this recipe. Such a great combination of flavors! I've made it a few times and it turns out great every time. Thanks!

Outstanding! I wasn't expecting the chicken to have as much flavor as it did, and the grilled plums were amazing. I used chicken breasts since it's what I had on hand, and didn't make the couscous but wish I did--the box rice mix I paired with it was too strong of a flavor. Next time the couscous is a must. Definitely one to make again.

This is one of my FAVORITES! I was going to add this if it wasn't on Zaar. We don't do the couscous, but the skewers are incredible! We love it with peaches and plums. I always double it, because they're 7 in my family and they're so good. Of course, you can use thighs or breasts. We use both since we have both dark and white meat lovers.
