1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 pint blackberries


1. In a medium saucepan, simmer the first 6 ingredients (through crushed red pepper) until reduced by half and just syrupy (15-20 minutes). Reserve 2 tablespoons of sauce for brushing on chicken; cool the remaining sauce slightly, then gently toss with blackberries.

2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Place chicken on grill, and cook 5 minutes per side. Brush chicken with the reserved sauce; grill just until chicken is glazed. Serve with blackberries.
