Recipe News: Chicken Breasts with Strawberry-Blueberry Chutney
"If you found it hard to get the five daily servings of produce you've been told for years you need, you'll probably find it even harder to get the nine serving experts now suggest.
But adding a fruit chutney or compote to your dinner plate — rather than just over a dessert — can help nudge you along.
Chutneys and compotes are both good choices, especially between seasons when fruits aren't necessarily at their best.
Both types of sauces usually are cooked, which means that even if the fruits aren't that sweet, any sugars they do have will concentrate, and the resulting flavors will be much more intense.
Compotes can be made with fresh or dried fruit, which usually is left chunky and baked or simmered in a light syrup. It can be served as a side or topping to a savory entree, such as chicken or pork.
A chutney is a condiment made with fruits, vegetables or legumes. They can vary in texture, be sweet or sour, and range in spiciness from mild to very hot."
