    This sauce is WAY too sweet. It tastes like jam. I feel it has potential but i dont know how to fix it.

    I also have to go with two stars, but I'd really rather say 2.5. It's not a solid recipe because it has room for improvement, but it's worth a try. I liked the plum-red wine mixture. I used Chianti as that's what I had opened. The plums I used were small and a few were smooshy ripe with others just giving slightly. It gave the sauce a nice tart, sweetness that neeeeeeds something else. Some spices in the sauce or on the chicken would have helped, but that's up to personal preference and also what you have in mind for a side dish. Definitely adaptable, but not perfect as is. I'll probably make it again since I have more plums and chicken breast, but there will additions to the sauce. I may go a little wild, who knows.

    I agree it needs less sweetness, I did this and it came out pretty good: used 1 teaspoon of canola oil to saute 2 garlic cloves, minced. Add that as well as 1/2 cup of low sodium, fat free chicken broth and 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin. Also, this did not take 25 minutes, about 10 minutes to thicken.
