NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled ginger
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (2 to 2 1/4 pounds)
  • 4 plums, halved and pitted
  • 6 cups baby arugula
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped roasted salted cashews
Directions
  • Preheat a grill to medium. Combine the hoisin sauce, vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the ginger, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Remove 3 tablespoons of the mixture to a separate large bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat. Add the plums to the remaining hoisin mixture and toss to coat.

  • Brush the grill grates with olive oil. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and grill until marked and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes per side; transfer to a large plate. Place the plums cut-side down on the grill; cook until just softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the chicken.

  • Toss the arugula with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, the lemon juice and cashews; season with salt. Serve with the grilled chicken and plums.
