Ingredients

For the chicken:

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

Instructions

  • 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!
