What’s Inside: A deliciously easy roasted chicken meal smothered in balsamic vinegar and strawberries with basil! It’s AIP, Paleo, and Whole30 approved, too. Serve with your favorite salad or veggies for a full meal.
Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Chicken?! With all the beautiful in-season strawberries around, and a 2 for 1 special I managed to snag (when does that happen!)… I had plenty on hand and was feeling crafty. I knew I wanted to roast some… and then this idea struck, boy was it a delicious one! My husband thought I lost it, but then he proceeded to “mmm” “mmmmm!” all the way through the entirety of his chicken breast. And suddenly his wifey wasn’t such a loon after all! (well at least in this case, on this specific day…)
The best way I can describe this is… decadent. The natural delicious sugars from the berries and balsamic vinegar gel into this heavenly glaze. The berries become plump and soft so it’s easy to smoosh onto your chicken. The hint of cinnamon I season the chicken with playing with the strawberries and basil is a nice touch too! This dish is fresh, light, and super luxurious… I say make it for someone you love, so you for sure, and whatever lucky person gets to sit with you!

I was a little hesitant to try this recipe but I’m so glad I did! The flavors work perfect together. I will definitely be making this again.
Right? It’s a little unique but such a great flavor combo – glad you gave it a shot.
I don’t know if we did something wrong, but it was barely edible. I usually love the recipes on this page, this one was just not for me.
Sorry to hear, Travis!
