Raspberry Chicken

A basic piece of grilled chicken gets a makeover with a heavenly, kind-of spicy Raspberry sauce. This chicken is truly delicious and quick and easy to make. A great dish to serve on a busy weeknight! I served ours with a healthy side salad, and we were in dinner heaven. The Raspberry sauce is divine and so flavorful! I didn’t think it was spicy at all, but if you’re really sensitive to spicy stuff use half the amount of the chipotle chili peppers and you’ll be good to go.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 cup Raspberry jam ( I used seedless) 
  • 1 Tablespoon pureed chipotle peppers in adobo sauce* 
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Pound chicken to 1/2 inch thickness. Season both sides with salt and pepper. 
  2. Cook chicken in skillet, on each side for 4 minutes, or until done in center. Remove from skillet and set aside to rest. 
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add Raspberry jam, pureed chipotle peppers in adobo, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Cook mixture over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and keep warm until chicken is done. 
  4. Serve each piece of grilled chicken with 1/4 cup of Raspberry sauce drizzled over the top.
