4 (6 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
minced fresh thyme
seedless blackberry fruit spread, no sugar added
cornstarch, or as desired
This chicken was fantastic, the only change I made was to season the chicken breasts with garlic and salt & pepper prior to browning. The sauce was a perfect blend of flavors, the balsamic did not overpower the balckberry as I thought it might. I can't wait to make this one again.
1 star for flavor, there just wasn't enough for me. I tasted much more thyme than berry, and the sauce was very bland. However, i did use a no-sugar fruit spread and that could have played a big part. If you're planning on trying this recipe, be sure not to make that mistake. I had leftover chicken, but invented my own sauce the next day and was much more pleased......here's what i came up with: 1 TB balsamic vinegar, 2 TB ketchup, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 1/2 cup no-sugar berry spread, 1 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 water + 1/2 TB cornstarch. As you can see, this is really not true at all to the original recipe.
Followed exact recipe. It was ok, but I probably won't make it again. The blackberry fruit spread was the dominate flavor and I'm not sure I like that flavor paired with thyme. On a plus side, it was very easy to make.
Very easy and quick. I loved the subtle, sweet herb flavor. The chicken breast was very tender and cooked just right. The sauce (more of a glaze, actually) added a nice depth and looked great drizzled on the chicken. I used 1 tsp of dried lemon thyme in place of fresh, but followed everything else exactly. I didn't need the cornstarch, as I thought the sauce reduced quite nicely. A wonderful blend of flavors, which went very well with a nice salad and herbed potatoes!
I am a beginner cook, and found this recipe extremely easy and delicious. I served the chicken on top of rice, with the sauce poured over it. My entire family loved it.
Very good and a perfect weeknight option - it wasn't as complex as I would have liked, but that was more than compensated for by how fast and easy it was to make.
This was a great new dish! I was looking for a new chicken recipe and found this. I scaled back on the thyme a tad and ended up making more of the blackberry sauce and let it thicken a bit longer after cooking the chicken. I will definitely make this again!
This was pretty good, as well as fast and not having too many ingredients. I used 1 tsp dried thyme in place of fresh.
