Chicken with Berry Relish

Serves 4

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts

salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cups fresh blackberries or raspberries

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon butter

2 Tablespoons fresh basil

2 Tablespoons scallions

2 teaspoons minced jalapeno peppers

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1/2 cup water, divided

Place chicken, sprinkled with salt and pepper, in roasting pan and bake at 350 degrees until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Put berries, jalapenos, butter and 1/4 cup of water into a saucepan and cover and let simmer on low heat until berries begin to reduce.  Whisk the cornstarch with remaining water and whisk into mixture and simmer until thickened to a glaze. Spoon in the scallions and the jalapenos. Take chicken from oven and coat the chicken with the glaze for the last ten minutes of cooking.
