Ingredients

For the marinade:
2 cups blackberries, mashed
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
a few shakes hot sauce of your choice
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons steak seasoning
6 chicken breasts, about 3 pounds total

For the glaze:
1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup blackberries


In a medium bowl, mash the 2 cups blackberries. Add to a large ziplock bag, along with the olive oil, 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, hot sauce, 2 tablespoons white sugar, and steak seasoning. Add the chicken and shake it up so everything gets all mixed together.


Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or up to 24. Turn every couple hours.


Heat grill to medium heat. If your chicken breasts are very thick, use a rolling pin or meat mallet to pound them down a bit. They will cook more evenly that way.


Prepare the glaze: in a small saucepan combine COLD water and cornstarch with a whisk. Turn the heat to medium. Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and 1 cup blackberries. Mash the berries. Stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens, about 4 minutes. Set over low heat and stir occasionally to keep warm while you cook the chicken.


Grill the chicken for 3-5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2-4 minutes or so. I highly recommend a meat thermometer.


Serve the hot chicken with the warm glaze spooned over the top. Goes great with grilled corn and mashed potatoes!

Notes

The blackberries can be purchased from a local farmers market in the summer season. The Chicken can also be purchased from a local farm. The other ingredients are more likely to be imported from other countries. The balsamic vinegar could be purchases locally, depending on your resources.
