This was a fun recipe! When making the sauce, I decided to use leeks in addition to the onions and garlic, and it was a wonderful addition. It ended up tasting better than I thought it would. I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this with a whole chicken. I just rubbed the outside with the cajun seasoning, put the chicken in an oven bag then sprinkled the inside and outside with the seasonings. Quartered the onion, put 1/2 inside and the rest outside the chicken. Did the same for the blueberries then poured the wine in the bottom of the bag. The taste was so good. Not too overpowering, but not too suttle. Though the flavor did get weaker towards the middle of the meat, so I think next time I'll try and skin the chicken before I start. In the end this added a beautiful summer flavor. Thanks SweetSue.
