Tangy Lemon-Plum Chicken

READY IN: 31mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Absolutely delicious grilled or baked chicken, with the sweet-sour flavors of plums, lemon and a dash of cloves, mustard, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauces. And although we haven't tried it, we think that the sauce itself would be just as good on pork, or would make a fine dipping sauce for egg rolls, etc.!

This sauce was simple to mix up and tasty and the only thing I would do differently would be to use a little less chili sauce since I thought it covered up the plum flavor too thoroughly for my taste. But overall a tasty dinner that I would make again. I shared some leftovers with Mom and she enjoyed them too.
