I have already made a plan/plans = busy

Someone asks "Are you busy tonight? How about dinner together?" and you want to say "I am busy tonight."

Which do native speakers say in this situation?

I have already made [a plan/plans].

I think the plural "plans" is correct and the singular "a plan" is wrong for this situation. Am I right?

Thank you.

    You're right. "I have already made plans" is normal. "I have already made a plan" would be strange.
