Tandoori Chicken Sticks with Wild Blueberry Fig Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup frozen Wild Blueberries
  • 1/2 cup Wild Blueberry jam
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh figs (or substitute pears)
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2/3 cup cooked red lentils
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered coriander
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 package Tandoori Tikka or Tandoori Chicken marinade
  • 1/2 cup low-fat, plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of oil or cooking spray
  • skewers

Preparation

Chop chicken breast into bite-sized chunks. Stir together Tandoori Tikka and yogurt in medium bowl and add chicken. Cover and let marinate for at least 1 hour.

Sauce: Stir together frozen Wild Blueberries and jam in a small saucepan. Rinse and chop figs. Add figs and orange zest. Cook sauce stirring until it just comes to a simmer. Remove from heat, cool slightly, add lentils and season with salt, pepper and coriander.

Sticks: Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Remove chicken from the marinade and drain in a colander. Place chicken pieces in an oiled 11x13-inch glass baking dish, without allowing them to touch. Roast 8-10 minutes until done. Place chicken on skewers. Serve with the Wild Blueberry dipping sauce. Serves 4 as entrée or 12 as an appetizer. Traditionally accompanied by rice as an entrée. Preparation time: approximately 10 minutes for sauce; 30 minutes for sticks, not including marinading time.
