This dish has a nice tang to it with the blend of the jelly, berries and vinegars. I sometimes add a tbsp of dijon mustard. Beautiful presentation
- 1⁄3 cup red currant jelly
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- salt & pepper
- 4 skinless chicken breast halves, bone in (you can use boneless but adjust your baking time they will cook quicker)
- 1⁄2 cup blackberry, fresh or frozen
- Whisk, over low heat, the red current jelly, vinegars and salt& pepper.
- Simmer 5 minutes (you can do this ahead of time and put it in a jar in the fridge).
- Heat oven to 375F degrees line a baking dish with foil.
- Brush chicken all over with the sauce, place in a baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes (depending on the size and if boneless or bone in).
- When chicken is done heat the remaining sauce and stir in the blackberries cook about 2 minutes.
- Place chicken on a platter and pour the sauce over, serve.
Jan 30/02 This was good, DH is calling it "Sticky Lips"! I had some skinless legs in the freezer, so I used them instead of breasts. Seemed to work ok. Also cut the sauce back for 2, which worked out fine, Quite a tangy taste and it was pretty. Thanks Bergy! Update = June 1/04, I have made this several times, it is very good, should say Berry Berry good!! This time I had no red currant jelly, so I subbed with grape jelly, it worked out just great, almost the same taste. Thanks again Bergy!!
I fried the chicken breasts to brown them then baked the dish.
