    Balsamic marinade

    1 cup fresh strawberry

    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

    1 Tablespoon brown sugar

    1/2 cup olive oil

    1 tsp sea salt

    1 tsp pepper

    1 tsp garlic

    4 peices of chicken you can use any kind of chicken it doesn’t have to be chicken breast

    1 bunch basil

    1 cup fresh strawberries

    Balsamic Glaze (for drizziling you can buy balsamic syrup at most grocery stores)

    if you want to make it  It only takes 15 minutes and it’s much healthier than buying it from the store (which usually has unnecessary stabilizers, emulsifiers and chemical colorings).

    1 cup balsamic vinegar

    1 tablespoon honey


    Blend all of marinade in blender place chicken in a zip lock marinade at least 4 hours or overnight.

    Heat grill, cook 25 minutes depending on what kind of chicken you have.

    Balsamic glaze

    Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small pot. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.

    refrigerate after use sauce will thicken as it cools.

    A little bit goes a long ways drizzle over cooked chicken

    dice strawberries and basil fold together and put on top of the chicken!

    Yum so good!


    You can also use your favorite balsamic vinaigrette and just add strawberries for the marinade. This can also be baked 400 25 minutes. But I enjoy the smokey flavor from the grill.
