Citrus Juniper Chicken with sweet potato and steamed broccoli
The steamed broccoli and sweet potato are easy. For the chicken I marinated the chicken in a concoction of white wine (I used Chardonnay), 1 sliced lemon, 1 sliced lime, ground pepper, 1-2 teaspoons of juniper berries (crushed), and copious amounts of agave nectar. I then poured that whole batch into a hot frying pan and cooked for about 20-30 minutes on medium heat. I flipped each breast three times. I also tossed some uncrushed juniper berries, just a few, in while it was cooking. I served the chicken with some of the sauce spooned over the chicken.
The aromas were amazing and the flavor was great!
