The original recipe was "Pork Medallions on Live Well Network's Let's Dish. I used chicken as the basis. I also changed a few steps in the recipe for my own cooking style.

I wasn't too sure about the recipe, but still wanted to try it. I'm so glad I did. It was such a surprise how delicious it was!

How to Make Berried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and ground thyme.
  2. Heat 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil in a heavy skillet to medium and cook chicken, 3-5 minutes on each side (chicken doesn’t need to be cooked through at this point).
  3. Remove chicken from pan, cover and keep warm.
  4. Add remaining oil & shallot to pan; cook just about 20-30 seconds.
  5. Add pomegranate juice to deglaze pan & add blueberries and chipotle.
  6. Reduce by half.
  7. Add broth; bring up to boil & reduce by half again.
  8. Combine cornstarch with about 1 tbsp cold pomegranate juice, mix & add just about 1 tablespoon of heated pan juices; whisk into pan.
  9. Bring to boil while stirring; add berries & chicken; cook chicken through.
