  • Author: Pip Payne

  • Yield: 4 1x


I adapted this recipe from Delicious Magazine (click here), chicken roasted with plums ends up sticky and juicy!

Syns: 2 per portion


  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 8 chicken thighs/drumsticks (skin and visible fat removed)
  • 2 red onions (cut into wedges)
  • 6 plums (halved and stone removed)
  • Olive oil spray- 10 sprays
  • sprig of thyme (leaves only)
  • Frylight
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 200c
  2. Mix together the honey and mustard in a small bowl
  3. Thrown the onion wedges and plum halves into an oven proof dish, sprinkle over the thyme leaves, and spray with the olive oil
  4. Dip and roll each piece of chicken into the mustard and honey and place on top of the onions/plums. Spoon any remaining mustard mix on top of the chicken. Season well, and then spray liberally with frylight all over.
  5. Roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, sticky and golden. 20 minutes into the cooking time, baste the chicken with some of the juices.


Serve with lemony cous cous and green vegetables.
