  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Honey
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Avocado Oil
  • Garlic

Let’s Cook:

  1. First, make the bruschetta by adding the tomatoes, red onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and oil in a small bowl. Set aside in the fridge while you prepare the chicken and the balsamic glaze.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 375′ and season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in an oven proof skillet over medium heat and cook chicken for 5 minutes on both sides. Transfer to the oven to finish cooking (about 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the breasts) Internal temp should be 165′
  3. While the chicken is cooking, we make the balsamic glaze. Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer until liquid is reduced by about half. It should be thick but still pourable
  4. Once chicken is done, serve on a platter and then top with the prepared bruschetta topping. Pour the balsamic glaze over top and enjoy!
