Ingredients

  • 1 Lb Chicken Breast (about 4 small breasts)
  • Salt
  • Dried basil
  • 2 Oz Goat cheese
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 Cup Ripe strawberries, roughly chopped and tightly packed (180g)
  • 4 Tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Good-quality balsamic vinegar (it should be thick and not have very few calories)
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • Fresh basil, for garnish

Instructions

  • Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the chicken between 2 layers of parchment paper and use a rolling pin or meat mallet or pound it out thinly. Sprinkle both sides with salt and dried basil (no need to measure)
  • Place 1/2 oz of cheese at the end of each breast and roll up tightly, using toothpicks to secure if needed.
  • Heat the oil up in a large, oven-safe pan on high heat. Sear the chicken breasts until golden brown on both side, about 1-2 mins per side.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees F inserted into the actual chicken breast, about 15-20 mins
  • While the chicken bakes, combine the strawberries and water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the strawberries break down and the sauce thickens up slightly, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vinegar and honey.
  • Serve the sauce of the chicken and garnish with basil and extra Balsamic if desired.
  • DEVOUR
