Blueberry-Dijon Chicken Recipe

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 Spgs, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup blueberry preserves
  • 1/3 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Minced fresh basil or tarragon, optional

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, cook chicken in butter over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. In the same skillet, combine the preserves, vinegar, blueberries and mustard, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. Serve with chicken. Sprinkle with basil if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"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."
