This recipe makes 4 servings.

Here’s what you need for the Chicken:

  • 1.5 pounds organic, skinless, boneless chicken tenders
  • 1 cup organic blackberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup plum vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 cup yellow onion, minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 packet Stevia

Rinse the chicken tenders and pat dry. Place in a large ziplock bag.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

*optional* Strain the seeds from marinade (If you would like to try it crunchy, then leave the seeds in)

Pour the marinade into the bag of chicken, seal and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Place the marinated chicken in a glass or ceramic baking pan (I use Le Creuset brand) and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven, drain off excess marinade, then place under high broil for 4 minutes, watching closely. Remove when golden.

Ingredients for the Blackberry Sauce:

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup organic blackberries
  • 1 packet Stevia
  • 1 Tbl plum vinegar

In a skillet over medium low heat, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Simmer, stirring often, until the blackberries become bright and the sauce reaches desired consistency.

If you wish to thicken the sauce more, add 1/2 teaspoon of arrowroot powder.

*optional* Strain the seeds from the sauce (If you don’t mind the crunch, then leave the seeds in!)

Serve over the cooked chicken.
