Grilled Chicken with Blackberry Sweet and Sour Sau

Lucy Selvaggio-Diaz


I had a bumper crop of blackberries this year and had to get creative to use them all up. They add beautiful contrasting color to a simple chicken breast.

boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp
cooking oil
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 c
blackberry jam
2 Tbsp
cognac or other alcohol
2 Tbsp
rice vinegar
1 tsp
grated fresh ginger
1 tsp
soy sauce
1/2 tsp
kosher salt
6 oz
fresh blackberries
1 tsp
minced fresh mint


1Preheat grill to high heat. Brush the chicken breasts with the cooking oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill 3 minutes per side, then reduce the heat on a gas grill to medium-low or move the chicken to indirect heat on a charcoal grill. Cover the grill until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
2Meanwhile, in a saucepan, over medium-high heat, add jam, cognac, vinegar, ginger, soy sauce, salt, and blackberries. Mash have the blackberries with a potato masher or fork. Reduce for about 2 minutes while stirring.
3Slice chicken and transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle with the blackberry sauce and garnish with the chopped mint leaves. Pass remaining sauce at the table.
