Chicken is my favorite meat. The best part about chicken is that it is widely and easily available and that it so flexible to work with. And it is soooo Yummy! :) This dish we are about to discuss is one of myself made recipes that came together (so wonderfully) by accident. When the spiciness of the chicken and the sweetness of the plum sauce combine, your taste buds are in for a heavenly ride. The dish can be served with Fried Rice or if the chicken pieces are cut really small, then it can be served as an appetizer.
