Chicken with Blueberry Sauce


It sounds strange. I can hear you now, “Blueberries on chicken? Heck no!” If you can get past how strange it sounds and actually try it, you will love it. I promise you.

Chicken with Blueberry Sauce

Based on Taste of Home, with thanks to Roxanne!

You’ll need:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade (or apricot preserves)
  • 3 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup vinegar (either cider or white)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (frozen would work great, as well!)

1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. We used cast iron, and loved it! Add chicken breasts and cook 3-4 minutes on each side.

2. Mix marmalade and mustard in a separate bowl. Pour over chicken, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Once chicken is cooked through, remove to a separate dish. Add vinegar, and stir for 3 or so minutes until a sauce-like consistency is formed. Add blueberries, and stir for another minute.

4. Pour sauce over chicken and serve over rice or quinoa.
