Plums baked with chicken in the magic cast iron deep chicken skillet turned out very well.
El V loved it -- particularly the plums themselves, which were transformed at least as much by the cooking with chicken as the chicken was infused with plum flavors.
As well there were steamed brussels sprouts, their bitterness balanced with the sweetness of the plum juice, potatoes mashed with butter, non-fat sour cream and skim milk. With butter one doesn't need whole dairy products. But that non-fat sour cream provides a touch of sour that is pleasant with the fruit sweetness, and a silky smooth texture.
I realize baked chicken and plums would go very well with couscous -- plus some almonds and maybe some sort of oranges or citrus too, though of course el V can't have citrus, which is burdensome to me as meal preparation person.
This would have been a splendid cold weather dinner, except in winter there are no fresh plums, and mostly the Farmer's Markets are closed because it's winter.
