Chicken with Blueberry-Ginger Chutney

Cooking Light
The chutney can be served warm, chilled, or at room temperature. Make it first, and chill while the chicken marinates, or prepare the chutney when the chicken is almost done marinating. Compared to fresh, frozen blueberries take about five minutes longer to cook and thicken because they release additional water.
6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 1/4 cup chutney)
