Summer Meals: Balsamic Basil Chicken

Summer inspiration is all around us with an abundance of produce and fresh herbs. And with that abundance comes the opportunity for creativity and fun flavor mash ups. Chicken is always a great vehicle to test out new flavor combinations. Now while balsamic with my dishes isn’t new, it is easy to mix things up.

This week I opted to make this balsamic and basil chicken dish. This is great served with a salad or rice and vegetables of choice. Check out the video walk through on Instagram or TikTok
