Chicken with Raspberry Sauce Recipe

Chicken with Raspberry Sauce Recipe

This tender marinated chicken gets a hint of sweetness when drizzled with a fruity sauce. I strain the mashed raspberries since our kids don't like the seeds. It's always a hit with rice pilaf and a salad. —Amy Ammann of Long Valley, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves, divided
  • 1/2 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened raspberries

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup preserves, raspberry vinegar, pineapple juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic and seasonings; mix well. Remove 1 cup for sauce; cover and refrigerate.
  • 2. Place the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; add remaining marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
