Blackberry Roasted Chicken


Blackberry Chicken
With words Wordless Wednesday

Ingredients

2 cups blackberries, washes & drained
2 chicken breast
1 lemon, sliced
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
garlic salt


Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Rinse and dry chicken. (I buy skinless chicken breast, so instead of putting the ingredients under the skin like the recipe called for, I just cut a canal down the center.) Place 2 rosemary sprigs, 1/4 blackberries, and 1/4 of lemon slices in center (I didn't really measure). Sprinkle with garlic salt.

Roast at 350 for about 45 minutes, until golden brown.


After a post I did requesting ideas on what to do with the blackberries from our yard, I found this recipe. I was very interested in trying it since it wasn't what you would normally suggest - usually a dessert related item comes to mind. I highly recommend trying this out if you still have access to blackberries this late in the season. It was quick, easy, and delicious!

  6. You are amazing! When are you moving to San Diego?

    Black berries only last a day at our house. The girls gobble them up as soon as they are washed....

  7. Yum! Now if I could just figure out how to turn on my oven and stop using it as storage. As you can see I don't cook very much!
