Updated on November 26, 2011

Exotic Savory Blueberry Chicken Dinner

Want to try a easy Dinner that is sure to delight and captivate the company you have over for dinner? Then try this easy Chicken Dish, it's sure to capture the taste buds of any food lover.

By the way, before I give out the recipe, just wanted everyone to know I am a seasoned chef, eight years in the making and currently running a restaruant on the eastern shore of maryland.

Blueberry Chicken---Feeds 6


  1. 6 Large Chicken Breasts
  2. 3/4 cup White Rice
  3. 8 ounces fresh Blueberry's
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. 1 small watermelon, diced
  6. 2 mangoes, diced
  7. 10 ounces snow peas
  8. 10 ounces Carrots
  9. 10 ounces cauliflower
  10. 1 ounce cinnamon
  11. 1/2 ounce garlic powder
  12. 1/2 salt
  13. 1/2 pepper
  14. 1 bunch of fresh basil, minced
  15. 6 leaves sage, minced
  16. 6 cups water( 1 1/2 cup for rice, 1 1/2 for blueberry syrup, 3 cups for vegetables)


Now, for the fun part. To help you understand the various parts of the preparation I will add these into sub categories and then incorporate.

--Fresh Basil Rice--

To start, combine the 3/4 cup rice and 1 1/2 cups water together, in a small pot, bring to a boil, stirring once adding basil in the process, then let simmer with a lid on top for ten minutes more.

--Cinnamon Vegetable medley--

To Begin, start another pot of 3 cups water, bringing to a boil, add cauliflower, carrots and snow peas, bring to a simmer and let cook for 15 minutes or until soft. After cooked, remove from pot and place in colander, allowing water to remove itself from the vegtables. After water removal, place in a large mixing bowl and lightly add a pinch of salt and 1 ounce of cinnamon. Set aside.


Cut fat from the edges of the chicken breasts, add garlic and pepper, and begin a saute pan with a light olive oil spray, turning to medium heat and cooking the chicken breast on both sides until cooked thoroughly(3 minutes either side will most likely do the trick.).

-At this point, begin to dice your watermelon and mango for future use in preparing the final touches on the plate.

--Blueberry Syrup--

In another Sautee pan, add 1 1/2 cups water and 8 ounces of blueberry's, bringing to a simmer. When done, add 1 cup of sugar slowly until incorporated into mixture, if properly done, will cause the liquid to become gooey. Turn off heat, let sit for twenty minutes.

---Adding them all together---

  1. Acquire 6 round plates
  2. On each, add a scoop of Fresh Basil Rice in the center.
  3. Circle the plate with a Cinnamon Vegetable Medley
  4. Place 1 Chicken Breast over top each scoop of Basil Rice.
  5. Add Blueberry Syrup over Chicken Breast and rice.
  6. Place diced watermelon and mango over top chicken breast and let settle into syrup.
  7. Serve with a smile :)
