Roasted Plum Chicken Salad |

I’ve got a problem, my friends.

Huge, huge problem.

Remember one day I was talking about our plans to visit a grape farm?

The good news is we did it yesterday. We grabbed some amazing concord grapes which smell just irresistible. The bad news is that we slightly overdid that.

One bushel of the concord grapes. Indeed, we’ve got only 2/3 of these grapes which still doesn’t make this situation better.

And the cost. Could you imagine that we got all these gorgeous grapes just for 20 dollars? How many pounds could you buy in your supermarket?

So, apparently, it’s #concordgrapeshavocinthekitchen happening.

All right, I’m exaggerating for some dramatic effect.

But the truth is that there are still some grapes to be utilized. Any ideas? Eating fresh isn’t the option anymore.

But let’s talk about this delicious salad! Roasted Plum Chicken Salad anyone? Delicious honey roasted plums combined with the peppery arugula, salty feta, and herbed pan seared chicken breast. That’s a good seasonal salad.

My searing technique is not the impeccable one, but the chicken turned almost perfect, moist and being lovely golden on one side. You still can choose for any other technique including braising.

All right, I’ve got to leave you with this Roasted Plum Chicken Salad because I have a very important mission #concordgrapes. In a meanwhile, I will always appreciate any piece of advice on how to utilise all these grapes.

And lastly – does anyone need some (5-10 pounds) of the excessive grapes?:)

    I adore all the flavors in this salad, Ben! Could eat it every day for lunch and dinner. Yummy! That’s a lot of grapes you two have there. Crazy for only $20!! The only recipe I can think of to use grapes is one by Paleo Leap. It’s a roast chicken with grapes, garlic, and fresh sage and is so good! You should try it.

    I roasted up a pan of plums this weekend and didn’t think to put them in a salad – what a great idea Ben!
    And – yay – glad you got to make that trip to a grape farm! I remeber seeing this recipe on David’s blog where his wife suggested he use roasted grapes on their pizza – I’ve tried it since and roasted grapes are fabulous – so maybe you could roast those ones you are not using to make jams or jellies with?

    I will gladly take those grapes off your hands! I’ve never been to a grape farm…how fun! I need to look and see if we have any of those around here. As far as the excess, I vote to put them in a big bucket and stomp on them. Then make wine. Or maybe make a big batch of concord grape jam. Yum!!
