Servings 4 People
For the salsa:
- 1/4 Cup Slivered almonds
- 2 Small nectarines, diced (1 1/2 cups or 220g)
- 2 Tbsp Fresh mint, minced
- 2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
- Salt, to taste
- 6 Tbsp Goat cheese, crumbled
Combine all the chicken ingredients (except the chicken) in a large, microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds-1 minute, until the honey dissolved. Whisk together and add in the chicken, tossing to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour but up to overnight.
The next day, preheat your grill to medium heat for 10 minutes. Cook the chicken breasts for 5-7 minutes per side until 165 degrees in the center! Let them rest 5 minutes.
While the chicken cooks, heat your oven to 400 degrees and toast the almonds on a small baking pan until lightly browned, just a few mins. They burn fast so keep an eye on them! Let them cool for at least 5 minutes.
Mix all the remaining ingredients, except the goat cheese, together in a small bowl. Crush in the almonds and season with salt. Finally, gently stir in the cheese so that it doesn't melt everywhere.
Serve the chicken topped with the salsa and DEVOUR!
