grilled blueberry bbq chicken

>> Wednesday, August 17, 2011

i found this recipe over at how sweet it is. if you've never checked out her blog, please do. she is hilarious, a great writer and even better cook. and all of her recipes look amazing.

anywho - i started to make this non-traditional bbq sauce when i realized i didn't have a few of the ingredients she called for. so i improvised a little bit. the end result was a tangy bbq sauce with a little bit of a sweet bite. it's fun, it's seasonal and its really versatile - you can serve it on just about anything - chicken,  seafood, pork, beef.


1 pound chicken cutlets
2/3 cup fresh blueberries
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
couple dashes of hot sauce
salt and pepper

in a small sauce pan heat blueberries over low heat. cook for about 10 minutes until berries begin to burst. mash with fork. add ketchup, both vinegars, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, dijon mustard, and hot sauce. season with salt and pepper. turn heat up to medium and cook until sauce begins to bubble. turn heat back down to low and cook for 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes. sauce should be thick with visible blueberries chunks.

grill chicken however you normally do it. take off grill and slather bbq sauce on chicken with pastry brush. serve remaining bbq sauce on the side with your favorite vegetable.
