Strawberry Basil Chicken

 

This dinner was so tasty and a great summer night meal!  The strawberries were so fresh.  Of course the fresh basil from our green house topped the recipe right off!   Delish!

Ingredients
  • 3-4 large chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze*
Instructions
  1. Begin by heating a large skillet to medium heat. Add olive oil and garlic, cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. Prepare your chicken breasts: you may need to pound the breast to make them a bit thinner, mine were approximately 1 inch. Salt and pepper each side, add to pan. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side (until golden brown, but cooked through). Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the topping. Toss together strawberries, basil, balsamic and 1 tbsp olive oil. Top each chicken breast with strawberry mixture, and salt and pepper to taste. Add additional balsamic glaze or balsamic if needed. Serve immediately.
Notes
Balsamic glaze is a thick syrup like version of balsamic vinegar, it is also a bit sweeter. It can be found in some grocery stores near salad dressings.
