Sauteed Chicken with Blueberry Peach Salsa

Sauteed Chicken with Blueberry Peach Salsa

Inspiration: We sure have been piling the fresh fruit into our basket at the grocery store lately. I think it’s the best thing about summer eating – all of the lovely, fantastic fruits and vegetables. I’m all for great, earthy, comforting stews and soups in the fall, but while summer is here – bring on the peaches!

What We Loved: This is one of those recipes that’s great for people who love the meat and fruit combination. The salsa is sweet from the peaches and blueberries, but it’s also nice and savory with the addition of tomatoes and earthy basil. I wouldn’t say that the salsa would be nearly as good on its own – it needs that chicken as a buttery, savory complement to the earthiness of the basil, which really is a characterizing flavor of the salsa as a whole. This is a great dinner to enjoy as summer winds down before all of the great peaches and blueberries are gone!

Tips: We had some leftover salsa that I saved and ate on its own the next day, and I really didn’t care for it leftover or without the chicken complement. So I’d suggest eating it all up on the first night.

    I just got home with 10 pounds of blueberries. At first I thought it was awesome (such a good deal!) but I have quickly descended into “what the heck am I gonna do with all these blueberries?”. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It looks so yummy I may have to try it tonight!

    • Wow – that is a LOT of blueberries! Not a bad problem to have, though :) I think my little boy would be enjoying them for breakfast every day!

    Blueberry peach salsa! Woah! That sounds fantastic. I made a blueberry and nectarine pie this summer; I just love the combination of the blueberries with nectarines or peaches! I’ll definitely have to give this salsa a go, too.

    • Thank you, Vanessa! I really appreciated reading that. I’m determined to get back into blogging again now! It’s been a while but life got hectic with the little one around. Here’s to starting again!

    • Yes, we don’t eat a lot of grains, so most recipes on this site don’t have them. Save for some potatoes and rice here and there!
