Strawberry Basil Chicken is a simple weeknight dish bursting with tangy basil balsamic flavor! The entire dish comes together in less than 20 minutes, and one that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
- 3-4 large chicken breasts
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves crushed
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
- 1 cup chopped fresh basil
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze*
Begin by heating a large skillet to medium heat. Add olive oil and garlic, cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant.
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.
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.
