Spring is here (at least in the South) which means strawberry farms are open for picking! I picked up some fresh strawberries today and put together this quick, easy and tasty dish in honor of sunshine and strawberries!
HERE is the recipe for you to print.
Prep time: 15 minutes prep
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes
3 boneless chicken breasts, halved and thinned
1 ½ cup fresh strawberries, diced
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 small red onion, diced
1 avocado, diced
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
Depending on the size of the chicken breasts, cut chicken in half thinning out the chicken.
Season chicken lightly on both sides with salt and pepper.
In a pan, cook chicken on medium heat until no longer pink, about 9-11 minutes on each side depending on the size of your chicken. Set aside to rest 3-5 minutes.
In a bowl combine diced strawberries, red onion, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt, mix well. Add avocado and combine.
Serve chicken with strawberry avocado mixture on top!
