Chicken with Blueberry Sauce.

This dish is simply amazing. The flavor is bright and bold, fruity that just pops! in your mouth. The chicken was so juicy and tender… literally, I had clear juices running down my fork and onto my hand! I just can’t express how wonderful this is, and how much I absolutely adore it.

The two times I’ve made the chicken, I’ve paired it with Honey-Garlic Angel Hair and boiled carrots. It works well together, and we love stirring the leftover sauce into the pasta for an extra kick once the chicken is eaten.

Chicken with Blueberry Sauce

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves or fruit spread**
  • 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

** Now, the two times I’ve made this, I’ve not had apricot preserves in my pantry, so I just used up things I did have. The first time, I used the last bit of Golden Peach Jam from my Aunt Edith. This time, however, I used a fresh jar of my mom’s Red Plum jelly… I think it was the best possible flavor combination!

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken breasts in oil for about 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Combine preserves and mustard in a small bowl; spoon over chicken. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

With a slotted spoon, remove chicken and keep warm (cover with foil on a plate). Add vinegar to skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes or until sauce is reduced by one-third, stirring occasionally. Stir in blueberries. Use the back of your spoon to gently smash the berries a bit, and stir the sauce some more. Ladle sauce and berries over chicken and serve.

Yield: 4 servings

In addition, the recipe for the Honey-Garlic Angel Hair pasta can be found HERE. It makes enough for 8 servings, so you might want to cut it in half for this dinner. Enjoy!
