Fireberry Chicken

Hey guys! Again, I have an over-abundance of berries, and chicken, so I whipped up this spicy, sweet and tarty chicken dish.

You will need:

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 large chicken legs, skin on
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt to season
  • 1tsp dried rosemary
  • 2Tsp butter
  • Optional: Red wine

Step one:

In a small saucepan, melt the butter, and add the berries. Coat and soften a bit, then add about a cup of water. (enough to cover) Add a pinch of cayenne. Or two, depending how brave you are. Optional: Splash of red wine.

Step two:

Season the chicken with garlic powder, salt, rosemary, five spice and pop in the oven at 400 for about 30mins.

Step three:

NOM NOM NOM! Find something to serve it with. Like yam mash. I love yam mash :P

It’s been a busy week, and it’s only gonna get busier for me. The weekend looks sooo far away, haha!

    Your directions are pretty sparse. How long do the berries cook for? And do they go on AFTER the chicken has cooked?

      Berries cook until they’re soft- there’s not a time because it can vary a lot with freshness and type. Use your best judgement. It’s a sauce (so dress the chicken after it’s roasted), so they need to be fairly mushy.
