Raspberry Chicken

I found this recipe in a magazine years and years ago. I believe it was my Self magazine, but I can't find the original source of the recipe. It's really easy and quick to make and all the flavors blend really well together. I like making it with the leftover jam I have when I make Raspberry Torte Bars. Leftovers are really nice in salads, too! This is a great recipe to make year round.
1. Round up the ingredients! You will need 1/2t. thyme, 1/2t. sage, 1/4t. salt, 1/4t. pepper, 4 chicken breasts, 1/4c. raspberry jam, 2T. orange juice, and 2T. wine vinegar (I had to substitute white vinegar and it was fine). I also just squeezed the juice from an orange since we don't drink much juice so I didn't want to make up a whole pitcher. 

2. Combine the salt, pepper, thyme, and sage together and rub over chicken. 

3. Place chicken in a 10 inch skillet and cook 8-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove from skillet.

4. Add the jam, orange juice, and vinegar to the skillet or small saucepan. Heat until boiling and boil for 2 minutes. Cook until desired consistency. This is not a thick sauce so it doesn't really boil down. Ours was fairly runny, but the taste is so good with the chicken!

  1. This looks delicious! I love an easy but tasty recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I've been getting a lot of chicken breast lately (protein!) so it's always fun to see new ways to prepare it.

  3. OK I love anything raspberry. I would totally love this. Grilled chicken with anything is tasty. This looks easy to make, tasty & yummy. Even the field greens & broccoli look delish. Thanks for sharing. I had missed your recipes. =)

  4. I am a grilled chicken lover, too! I love the raspberry sauce with this! :)
