Blackberry Glazed Chicken #BerryWeek

These delicious chicken breasts are grilled to perfection and then brushed with a Blackberry Glaze instead of BBQ sauce.  They are delightfully different and incredibly tasty.


This is my second contribution to Berry Week hosted by the ladies of Festive Foodies.......
The administrators of our Festive Foodies group asked us to join them for a week long celebration of Summer Berries.  The party started on Monday.  I joined in yesterday with a wonderful Main Course Salad and I'm back today to share this amazing grilled chicken recipe.

Let's see what the others brought to the celebration today........

Wednesday Berry Week Recipes


The star of this dish is this lovely, silky, blackberry glaze brushed onto the chicken during the last minutes of grilling.  It adds an amazing depth of flavor to the boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  You could also use this glaze on a whole chicken or on your favorite chicken parts.


I served this chicken up with a side of Macaroni Salad and Broccoli Salad.  It was a wonderful meal that was not only yummy but quick and easy to make.
