1.  In a small saucepan, heat the 2 teaspoons sugar over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts and browns slightly. Add the vinegar and continue to cook until it evaporates. Then add the broth and boil down for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture is slightly syrupy and coats the back of a spoon.

2.  Add the berries, cover the pan, and simmer over high heat for 4 minutes, or until they release their juices. Using a slotted spoon, gently remove the berries and reserve. Boil down the sauce, which will now be thinner because of the liquid released by the berries, until it has a syrupy consistency.

3.  Taste the sauce and adjust with more sugar or vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and whisk in the butter. Return the berries to the sauce and reheat gently.

4.  Arrange the sliced breasts on warmed plates and spoon the sauce over the top.
