Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing in 2 minutes or less

I'm an impatient man. I want instant gratification. Well this is it.

For years, in our office we would order salads from a local bakery for our lunch meetings. I always loved the raspberry vinaigrette that came with the salad. I bought many a bottle at the store. I tried various brands but nothing close. But this is it. Plus it's cheap, and all ingredients can be kept on hand.

Rating 9.5  but a 10 for ease.
Time: really about 1 minute

Notes: Adjust the ratio of oil to vinegar for lower fat. I find 1:1 or even 1:2 very good with a lot less fat.

Tools: nothing special but a Tupperware grave maker is quite handy

Ingredients:
3 T raspberry preserves or jam
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper

Instructions:
1) In a microwave safe container or mixing bowl place the raspberry preserves or jam. Microwave on high for only 10 seconds. Just to soften the preserves.

2) Add all other ingredients and mix well.

I have no clue what chicken recipe. I would suggest a good shake of the 7:2:1 or 7:2:2 seasoning then grill over medium high heat flipping every 3-4 minutes until internal temp of 165. It should take about 25-30 minutes depending on your grill and thickness of the breasts.
