A finalist in the 2012 Just BARE® Just 5 Cooking Challenge, this recipe comes from Melanie T. of Tulsa, OK. The melding of sweet berries, honey, and chile heat is fantastic with chicken.


  1. Mash blueberries with a fork in a medium bowl; stir in honey and chiles. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper; sauté about 4 minutes or until golden brown. Add blueberry mixture to skillet; reduce heat to low and partially cover. Simmer about 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and sauce is thick. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Stir in 2 tablespoons cilantro.

  3. Serve chicken with sauce, garnished with cilantro leaves.
