Strawberry-Basil-Chicken-3

Instructions

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

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.
