This is a great dish for a cold day.


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. To prepare chicken, combine nuts, basil, zest, and breadcrumbs in food processor; pulse until ground. Spread out in a shallow dish.

  2. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat; add chicken and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until just golden. Remove from skillet; allow to cool slightly. Brush with buttermilk and press all sides in nut mixture.

  3. Place on rimmed baking sheet; roast 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink in center and juices run clear. Cook to internal temp of 165°F.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare relish. Heat oil in small saucepan over medium heat; add onion and cook 2 minutes. Stir in sugar and plums; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until syrupy.

  5. Serve chicken topped with relish.
