This crispy chicken thighs with blueberry sauce dish is one of my favorite recipes I’ve made this fall. I still can’t get over how delicious it came out, how simple it was to make, and how quickly it was on the dinner table! Delicious frozen blueberries are the highlighted ingredient in this recipe. While most of the time we tend to incorporate blueberries into sweet dishes, it’s all about savory when it comes to these crispy chicken thighs with blueberry sauce. Adding a handful of blueberries to this dish, or any other holiday-inspired dish can make a huge difference in flavor. It really takes an ordinary chicken recipe to the next level!
