Inspired by a blackberry chicken recipe and at the request of my roommate, this was an experiment that turned out FANTASTIC! Great if paired with a glass of Riesling or your other favorite white wine!

Ingredients

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 tablespoons white wine

  • 1 tablespoon crushed dried rosemary

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ cup chopped fresh strawberries

  • ½ cup strawberry yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place the chicken breasts into a shallow bowl, and drizzle with white wine; sprinkle with rosemary. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off excess marinade. Retain the marinade. Place the chicken breasts into the hot oil, and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set the chicken breasts aside.

  3. Place the strawberries and strawberry yogurt in a blender, and pulse several times to puree. Pour the strawberry mixture into the skillet and stir in the marinade, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, scraping up and dissolving any brown flavor bits from the bottom of the skillet. Lay the chicken breasts into the strawberry sauce, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer, inserted into the thickest part of a breast, should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Stir occasionally while simmering.

Cook's Note

If you're like me and can only eat half a chicken breast, then this will feed 6. Otherwise, one chicken breast per person.
