Tangy and sweet- this dish is sure to please your tastebuds! This dish pairs well with wild rice and fresh spinach.
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 skinned chicken breasts (about 4 ounces each)
1/3 cup seedless blackberry preserves
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Fresh spinach leaves, trimmed
black pepper to taste
1 Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes.
2 Sprinkle chicken with thyme and add to pan. Cook for about 6 minutes on each side or until done (no longer pink in the middle). Remove chicken from the pan and keep warm.
3 Reduce heat to medium. Add blackberry preserves, vinegar and pepper to pan, stirring constantly until the preserves melt.
4 Arrange 1 cup (or more!) fresh spinach on 4 plates. Place chicken breast on top and spoon 2 tablespoons sauce over each chicken breast.
