Instructions

For the Chicken

  1. Rinse the chicken tenders and pat dry. Place in a large ziplock bag.

  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

  3. *optional* Strain the seeds from marinade (If you don't mind the crunch, then leave the seeds in!)

  4. Pour the marinade into the bag of chicken, seal and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.

  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place the marinated chicken in a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven, drain off excess marinade, then place under high broil for 4 minutes, watching closely. Remove when golden.

For the Blackberry Sauce

  1. In a skillet over medium low heat, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a simmer.

  2. Simmer, stirring often, until the blackberries become bright and the sauce reaches desired consistency.

  3. If you wish to thicken the sauce more, add 1/2 teaspoon of arrowroot powder.

  4. *optional* Strain the seeds from the sauce (If you don't mind the crunch, then leave the seeds in!)

  5. Drizzle over the cooked chicken.
