  1. 4th of July Special: Red, White & Blueberry Grilled Chicken!

    Thu, 2 Jul 2015

    These colors don’t run, but they do stain, so I recommend eating this delicious, red, white and blueberry chicken outdoors, preferably at some type of 4th of July barbecue. While the Independence Day wordplay was very much intentional, this grilled chicken is no gimmick. Smoky, spicy meats have been paired with sweet-and-sour, fruit-based sauces since we’ve had cooks, so that this combo works beautifully is no big surprise. And yes, other juicy fruit like peaches, or other berries will work nicely. Like I said in the video, I made my spice rub extra hot, so I could really take advantage of the cooling effects of the sweetness in the sauce. Sweet cancels out heat on your palette, so you can kind of push things a bit if you want. The measurements below are what I used, but you should, and must adjust.   As far as chicken doneness goes, I recommend checking with a thermometer. If you cook a lot of chicken, it’s fairly easy to tell by feel, but why take a chance? I usually go to 150 F, which left to rest for a minute, should be safe, and very juicy. So, if you’re looking for a very tasty, slightly unusual, appropriately named chicken recipe, I really hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for 4 portions: 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 tbsp kosher salt 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1 tbsp paprika 1 tsp ground dry chipotle 1/2 tsp cayenne 2 cloves minced garlic For the blueberry gastrique: 2 cups blueberries 1/3 cup white sugar 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar *splash of water as needed to adjust thickness (after the blueberries start cooking) salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste *If you make the sauce ahead, your sauce will thicken, and you will probably need to thin it out with some water. When tasting for seasoning, remember this is going to go on highly seasoned meat.
