Blueberry Pecan Glazed Chicken

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Serves: 4

While many of these ingredients sound like they belong in a dessert, blueberries, maple, and pecans create a versatile sauce. This chicken is just as home alongside greens and mashed potatoes as it is sliced and served on a cheese plate.


4 bone-in, skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp (15 mL) onion(s), diced
1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 1/2 cup (375 mL) blueberries
1 tbsp (15 mL) maple syrup
1 tbsp (15 mL) pecans, chopped
1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) apple cider vinegar
salt, pinch
pepper, pinch


1 Preheat barbecue to medium heat.
2 Grill chicken breasts, bone side down, for about 14 minutes.
3 Turn chicken and continue grilling until a meat thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165°F (74°C) (about 10-14 minutes).
4 Sauté onion and garlic in butter for 2 minutes.
5 Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened.
6 Spoon sauce over chicken breasts and serve immediately.
