This tender chicken is marinated, grilled, and then topped with a delicious Blackberry-Balsamic Glaze. It is easy to throw together and perfect for using up those summer berries!
Charlotte stopped me in the middle of reading her a book today to inform me of the correct pronunciation of the word “patent.” She’s FOUR. She CAN’T READ.
Apparently it’s not pronounced “pay-tent” leather. Don’t judge me, okay. I have my 4-year-old for that.
Eric is always calling me out on my terrible pronunciation. I am well-read and have a decent vocabulary. But you never have to read it out loud, so how should I know?
I read “arrogant” wrong for years as a kid and thought it was pronounced “aggorant.” One time as a tween I came up to my mom and asked her what whores-dwoveres were. (Hors d’oeurves) Don’t even get me started on “rendezvous.” Or the time I pronounced “fatigue” as “fat-ig-you” in front of an entire church congregation. Yep, never gonna live that one down.
Today we’re making Balkberry Blasamic Glazed Chicken! Just kidding. A couple weeks ago after my epic battle with the thorns, I had several gallons of fresh blackberries. So naturally I made 4 of these Fresh Blackberry Glace Pies. (Count em, FOUR. Worth it.) And then I still had some and decided I wanted to do something savory. And glazey. Savorazy.
The marinade for this chicken is based off this ever-popular Balsamic Grilled Chicken with Spicy Honey-Bacon Glaze. I changed it up and added smashed berries, but be aware that this turns your chicken a violent shade of purple on the outside. I love it! So colorful. But if you are short on berries, you can use the marinade from the original recipe and just use the berries in the glaze. Either way would be tasty.
The glaze is adapted from another super popular recipe on my blog, Brown Sugar Balsamic Pork Tenderloin. I really like the blackberry-balsamic combo, it totally works. Hooray for summer grilling! Have a great weekend everyone!
