Day 3: Grilled Chicken with Blueberry-Basil Salsa

It is that time of the year to think about being healthy. But do you have to sacrafice flavor?

A healthy diet need to have grilled chicken breasts now and then. But unless you fry them (fat) or grill them (carbon things), you may end up with a bland steamed chicken breast.

Not with this recipe. It is a "Bobby Flay" style recipe - with marinated chicken breast and a sweet, yet not over powering salsa

But blueberries. I thought the same thing. But I was surprised with the taste.

Key to this recipe is having at least 3 hours in advance (if not 24 hours) of the eating.This gives time for both marinating and brining of the chicken as well as the "marriaging" of the salasa flavors.

I will add more insight to this recipe. But for now, begin with this recipe, posted at Martha Steward:


Here is my result. It was very tasty. Key of course are the savories in the salsa, as well as a young enough chicken breast (not the $1.99 lb breasts on sale at your local supermarket) that are juicy and sweet.
