  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. While the chicken breasts are cooking, whisk together the chicken broth, thyme, blackberry spread, and balsamic vinegar.
  2. Once the chicken breasts have browned on both sides, pour in the blackberry sauce, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Turn the chicken breasts over halfway through cooking. Serve with the reduced blackberry sauce. For a thicker sauce, mix cornstarch with about 2 teaspoons of water, and stir into simmering sauce; let cook until thickened, about 1 minute.


  • Cook's Note
  • You can also freeze. Keep chicken separate from mixture. Combine mixture in a zip lock bag and freeze. Then when ready, defrost and follow directions above.

1 star for flavor, there just wasn't enough for me. I tasted much more thyme than berry, and the sauce was very bland. However, i did use a no-sugar fruit spread and that could have played a b...

Followed exact recipe. It was ok, but I probably won't make it again. The blackberry fruit spread was the dominate flavor and I'm not sure I like that flavor paired with thyme. On a plus side...

Very easy and quick. I loved the subtle, sweet herb flavor. The chicken breast was very tender and cooked just right. The sauce (more of a glaze, actually) added a nice depth and looked great dr...

I am a beginner cook, and found this recipe extremely easy and delicious. I served the chicken on top of rice, with the sauce poured over it. My entire family loved it.

Very good and a perfect weeknight option - it wasn't as complex as I would have liked, but that was more than compensated for by how fast and easy it was to make.

This was a great new dish! I was looking for a new chicken recipe and found this. I scaled back on the thyme a tad and ended up making more of the blackberry sauce and let it thicken a bit longe...

This was pretty good, as well as fast and not having too many ingredients. I used 1 tsp dried thyme in place of fresh.

With some minor changes (that's just me) I LOVED IT!
