Ingredients

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s honey
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1.5 lb. Gerber’s CARE Certified skinless chicken breasts
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Fresh basil, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
