Easy Dinner Recipes with Dried Fruit

We here at Celebrations.com have discovered something amazing. Did you ever think to add dried fruit to your dinner entrees? Though it might not be the first ingredient that jumps to mind when planning a meal, dried fruit really works wonders for a dish. We came up with three easy entree recipes featuring either dried diced plums or apricots or both, and let us tell you - they are delish.

The addition of dried fruit to a meal adds a subtle sweetness that infuses meat with a great flavor, but gives the dish a wonderful texture and bite. We whipped up three dinner recipes that couldn't be better - not only are they tasty, they're also full of fiber thanks to the fruit, and take less than 30 minutes each to prepare and cook.

So, the next time you're looking to switch things up for a weeknight meal or to impress dinner party guests without going nuts in the kitchen, turn to one of these dishes.
