Blueberries and chicken may seem like a strange combination, but prepare to be pleasantly surprised. I add a sprinkling of minced fresh basil as the finishing touch. —Susan Marshall, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"Holy smokes! This was awesome! It is one of the best recipes I have tried in a long time. The fact that it was simple and quick was an added bonus. I couldn't find plain raspberry vinegar at the store so I used the raspberry balsamic that I had on hand. I would do it exactly the same next time around, which I hope is soon."

"We loved this recipe! I substituted blueberry balsamic vinegar for the raspberry vinegar and grilled the chicken instead of pan-frying. I will definitely be making this again!"

"This recipe is really good, it is different, but good. I had company over when I made it and they said it was like something from a fancy place out to eat. The vinegar was a bit strong though and will be toning it down a bit the next time I make this dish."

"We loved it! My husband was skeptical about blueberries with chicken and ended up loving every bite. I made with cheese tortellinis and corn on the cob. We felt like we ate at a five star restaurant."
