Turkey breast in creamy plum sauce...

My Hubby cooks a lot lately. Mainly because I'm back to work on full time and he still has some holidays left - he'll be back on the 18th Jan!... I'm eating lunches at home, it's only 3 minutes from work and I'm saving good bit of money this way. Since Hubby is at home I have hot lunch ready every day :) Last time he made beautiful! turkey breast in creamy plum sauce, served with tagliatelle. I'm sure it will also work well with chicken instead of turkey. He didn't have a recipe as such so it was hard to get something from him - but I succeeded :)

How to make it...

- turkey breast (cut into pieces and marinated in salt, pepper, paprika, lemon juice, honey and a little of all spice)
- oil for frying
- some plain flour for coating
- 500 ml beef stock
- 10 dried prunes, diced
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons cream
- salt, pepper

After marinating your turkey for about 1 hour, coat it in flour and fry on the oil till golden brown. In the meantime combine all the sauce ingredients and heat stirring from time to time. Simmer for 3 minutes till it thickens slightly. Basically your lunch/dinner is ready. Cook some pasta or rice to serve it with and enjoy!
