• 4 large chicken breasts, pounded 1-inch thick
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped
  1. Set the chicken breasts in a plastic bag or shallow dish. Whisk the balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Then pour evenly over the chicken. For best results, marinate a few hours or overnight.
  2. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken to the hot pan and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, toss the strawberries and basil together.
  4. To serve, top each chicken breast with the strawberry basil mixture and finish with more black pepper, if you wish.
