Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Chicken

We have been (over) indulging on this recipe lately. Strawberries are in season and this dish taste like the beginning of summer. Although the recipe calls for boneless, skinless breasts we have paired the glaze with a number of different bone-in, skin on cuts and all have been delicious. Just adjust cooking time appropriately. Experiment & enjoy!

Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Chicken

Servings: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes


For the Chicken:

  • 4  thin sliced (boneless, skinless) chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped shallot
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

    For the Glaze

    • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 3 tbsp honey
    • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
    • 1/2 tbsp minced shallots
    • 1/2 tsp chopped garlic
    • 2 cups strawberries, tops cut off and berry sliced
    • 1 tsp corn starch


      For the Chicken

      1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together the shallots, garlic, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar to make marinade. 

      2. Place chicken in a Pyrex baking dish. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper, then pour the marinade over the meat. Turn chicken to coat. If you have time, marinate for up to 2 hours. 

      3. Place chicken in preheated oven for 25 minutes. (Adjust cooking time for bone-in, skin on cuts)

      For the Glaze

      1. In a medium sized sauce pan combine balsamic vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, garlic and shallots. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let mixture simmer for about 10 minutes uncovered.

      2. If after 10 minutes you find the glaze is still too thin  (look for a syrup-like consistency) mix a teaspoon of cornstarch with about a tablespoon of water and whisk in a small bowl. Add to saucepan. Whisk to combine and simmer for an additional 2 minutes. You will notice the mixture get thicker. 

      3. Add the strawberries. Continue to simmer for 3 minutes. Strawberries will begin to break down a bit. Turn off heat. 

      4. Transfer baked chicken to a platter or plate. Spoon strawberry glaze over chicken. Serve with greens such as spinach or kale.
