I received a three-pack of Top Mates Gourmet Jams and Finishing Sauce to try, and they were all so delicious! They inspired me to share with you one of my favorite ways to add a ton of flavor to chicken breast: with your favorite jam or preserves!
I am not talking about regular strawberry jam - that might be a bit weird! But if you find a good jar of a gourmet flavor such as caramelized garlic or a bacon onion jam, I guarantee that you can make an amazing dinner of grilled/roasted chicken breast topped with these decadent gourmet jams.
Below I share my favorite way of topping chicken breast with gourmet jam or preserves. It's super easy and super tasty! It is one of my secret kitchen tricks that makes it seem like I worked way harder than I actually did. 🙂
By the way, these gourmet jams can also be used as a quick appetizer - just spoon them over some toasted crostini and your dinner guests will think you're fancy, or serve with crackers next time you put together a charcuterie or wine and fruit platter. Again, looks fancy but is super easy!
Chicken Breast with Caramelized Onion Gourmet Jam
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 4 tablespoons Caramelized Onion Jam
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet. Season the chicken breasts liberally with salt & pepper on both sides, and add to skillet. Sear for 3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. Transfer the skillet to the oven (or place chicken in a separate baking dish), and bake for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked (165-170F in the center).
- Top each chicken with 2 tablespoons Caramelized Onion Jam

Ahh I am afraid that brand is no longer in business, which is sad because they were DELICIOUS!! There are other brands of caramelized onion / jam out there, so I will give some of those a try with chicken and update the recipe with a recommendation.. but it might take me a few months because I have my blog recipes planned out for a while, so if you get around to it first, please let me know what you tried and how you like it!
