Balsamic Chicken with Strawberries, Basil and Feta Cheese

Balsamic Chicken with Strawberries, Basil and Feta Cheese

This dish is as simple as roasting the chicken breasts – feel free to use thighs if you prefer – with a little balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. While it’s cooking, wash and cut your strawberries and combine them with basil and feta cheese. Goat cheese would be a nice option here. Top your chicken with the strawberry mixture and drizzle with a little more balsamic vinegar and you’ve got dinner.
