Baked chicken in a healthy and authentic Asian plum sauce 


Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s baked chicken in an Asian plum sauce.

I have to say that I think this may be my favourite chicken recipe yet. To begin with the sauce has the most gorgeous sweet and sour tang. This flavour goes so beautifully with the baked chicken that it is truly a match made in heaven.

I made quite a large batch of sauce because my feeling is that when you are making a sauce like this from scratch it seems a waste to make enough for just one meal. I landed up using about half of the sauce and then I froze the rest of the sauce to use again another day.

This sauce is also really healthy. It is packed full of antioxidants from the incredible plums and is sweetened with stevia which is a much healthier alternative to sugar.

I absolutely loved this baked chicken recipe and I hope that you do too. If you are looking for some more chicken inspiration the check out this delicious honey soy and Chinese-5-spice roast chicken  or  The easiest and most delicious chicken lo mein recipe or one of my other favourite recipes which is an unbelievable  Thai peanut butter chicken curry.       .

Until next time, Leanne xoxo
