Grilled Chicken with Blackberry Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup blackberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons cognac
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 6 ounces fresh blackberries
  • 1 teaspoon fresh mint, minced


Preheat grill to high heat. Brush each side of chicken breasts with the cooking oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill 3 minutes on each side, then turn the heat to medium-low and cover to cook for an additional 5 minutes or until cooked through.

In a saucepan or skillet over medium high heat, add all ingredients and stir to combine. Smash half of the berries with a fork to release the juices. Let the mixture cook down for approximately 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over grilled chicken and serve immediately.
