Rosemary Chicken Skewers with Berry Sauce

 
280

I've always been a fan of combining sweet fruits with savory spices, it sets up a certain flavor balance that just works so well. Mango with chili pepper, peaches and thyme, rhubarb and rosemary. They're all delicious, so can there be any question that blackberries and rosemary would just be a match made in heaven?

Ingredients

1 ½ pound chicken
Breast or Thigh skin on or off
2 tablespoons rosemary leaves
Chopped fresh
¼ cup white wine
Dry white wine or Vermouth
*
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 ¾ cup blackberries
FOR THE SAUCE:
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons currant jelly
(or berry jam or jelly)
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
*

Directions

1 Cut the chicken into 1½ inch pieces and place in a bowl. Mix with the wine, oil, rosemary, and pepper. Cover and set aside to marinate in the refrigerator for one hour.

2 Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Thread the chicken onto skewers and season generously with salt.

3a Grilling Preheat the grill for direct high heat. Brush the grill grates with olive oil. Place chicken skewers on grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Place on a platter and cover with foil to allow the chicken to rest.

3b Broiling Preheat the broiler. Place skewers on an oiled broiling pan, 5 to 6 inches away from the burner. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Place on a platter and cover with foil to allow the chicken to rest.

4To make the sauce, place the marinade and the berries in a sauce pan and simmer gently until the berries are soft. Press through a strainer and discard the pulp.

5 Return the juice and marinade mixture to the pan. Add the vinegar, jelly, and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered until it has reduced by about ⅓ to a light syrup-like consistency.

Plate the skewers and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Serve immediately.
