Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup mashed fresh blackberries (or blackberry preserves)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch, or as desired (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  2. While the chicken breasts are cooking, whisk together the chicken broth, thyme, blackberries, and balsamic vinegar.
  3. Once the chicken breasts have browned on both sides, pour in the blackberry sauce and bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Flip the chicken breasts over halfway through cooking.
  4. For a thicker sauce, mix 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch with about 2 teaspoons of water, and stir into the simmering sauce. Let the sauce cook until it is thickened, about 1 minute.
  5. Serve chicken breasts with the blackberry sauce.
