    How funny I posted a recipe with a blackberry glaze today too. Never thought I would mix that berry with meat but I love it.

      Definitely!! Just make sure you grill (or cook however you prefer) to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

    What a WoNdErFuL recipe!! I stumbled upon this when the calling of five spice caught my eye. I purchased some a while back and have only used it in a single dish. I substituted rice wine vinegar for the cider vinegar and blueberry preserves for the blackberry. I also pan seared the chicken then covered it for about 10 minutes. Wow! The flavor of the chicken and the ginger in the berry sauce takes this dish to another level. Quick and Easy. Great way to spice up your weeknight dinner.
