Some people don't care for fruit and meat combinations... however I like the unique taste of sweet and savory combined. Given this, I had a small jar of raspberry jam and leftover raspberry vinaigrette staring at me so I combined them to make a very flavorful raspberry marinade.
Red raspberries are a healthy addition to everyone's diet. This fruit has a unique delicious taste and is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. Possibly the most promising benefit from consuming red raspberries is their substantial quantity of ellagic acid, a phenolic antioxidant compound known as a potent anti-carcinogenic compound. Clinical tests show that ellagic acid may inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

Here is my recipe for Raspberry Infused Chicken:

4 large chicken thighs
1/2 - 3/4 standard bottle of raspberry vinaigrette
1 small jar of raspberry jam
1 tablespoon garlic
chopped parsley

Combine all the above ingredients except chicken.
Place chicken in a ziploc bag and pour marinade over chicken.
Allow chicken to marinade overnight.
Place chicken on baking pan and discard marinade.
Bake chicken at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear.
Top with fresh chopped parsley.

You can bake or grill the chicken and you can
your preferred cuts of chicken or even pork.
