My son is in the stage where he is eating adult food, but only chicken and starches. I came up with this delicious recipe to help get some more fruit in him!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Place 3 plums and 1 peach into the work bowl of a food processor with the juice drink, red pepper flakes, paprika, and cinnamon; process until smooth. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper; place into the prepared baking dish. Pour about 3/4 of the fruit sauce over the chicken. Set the remaining sauce aside.

  • Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until the sauce has thickened and baked onto the meat, the chicken is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Place each chicken breast on a plate and spoon the reserved fruit sauce over the chicken. Place 1 chopped plum and 1 chopped peach into a bowl, and mix the fruit together; garnish each chicken breast with 1/3 of the chopped fruit.

I give this 5 stars but I made some changes. Instead of adding juice I used the syrup that comes in the can with canned peaches. I didn't have to add sugar. If you like sweet and spicy add some ground cayenne pepper. This entire recipe I added the ingredients to taste so I had to keep adding this and that until I thought it was perfect. I added some red food coloring to make it look more appetizing. Also before I added to the chicken before baking I took the sauce and simmered it on the stove to just as you would if you were making preserves. It was so great my picky eaters ate it up quick. After experimenting on my family I gave some to my next door neighbors and they loved it. I served it with stir fry veggies and jasmine rice. Read More

I loved the sweetness of this but I would change things a little bit. I used fresh fruit only and very ripe fruit. I also could not find the juice suggested so I used a tropical blend from bi-lo with carrot and fruit juices in it. The juice was great. I'd definately peel the plums next time and leave the peelings out. I will also be dumping ALL of the fruit mixture on the uncooked chicken. I found I liked the taste of the fruit better when cooked into a glaze on the hot chicken. I also left out the pepper flakes.. I might try those next time. I served this with lightly buttered rice and sweet corn. Read More

I hesitated to review this but loved the results I got when I tweaked the recipe. My fruit was very ripe. I thought I had peaches but had nectarines so I used a nectarine. I didn't have the vegetable juice drink so I subbed 1/8 cup Fresca (because it sounded like the sauce was thin in the original recipe) and after tasting added more red pepper flakes. The grapefruit taste in the Fresca made this fabulous. I cooked the chicken on the stovetop browning and then adding the sauce. Served with white rice. Very good. Thanks Don for suggesting this!

I liked this a lot! Both spicy and sweet. I added some cayenne pepper. I used just stir fry chicken that was pre cut and it cooked in 30 mins. Easy quick and delicious! Read More

I enjoyed this dish and it was pretty easy to make. I do agree with the previous reviewer that the sauce tastes better cooked. The salt and pepper on the chicken infuse the sauce while cooking taming the tartness of the fruit. This took 35 minutes to bake.. Read More

I tried this recipe for the first time tonight, but I simply used apple juice instead of a veggie and fruit blend. I thought it tasted fine, but I might try peeling the plums and peaches next time. The fragments of the skins present after putting the sauce through a food processor gave it a strange texture and added a little bitterness to the taste. I definitely want to try this again!

The only difference that I had made was to add a couple tablespoons of honey to sweeten it up a little. Delicious! Read More
