Grilled Chicken Breasts with Warm Balsamic Strawberry Salsa

Servings: 4


  • 4 4-ounce boneless and skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup Warm Balsamic Strawberry Salsa
  • extra minced chives for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the pounded chicken breasts in a shallow dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, oil, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper. Pour over the chicken and marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat a grooved nonstick pan, remove the chicken from the marinade and dry with paper towel. Cook until the chicken is done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side, and juices run clear when prodded with the sharp tip of a knife. Serve at once with 2 tablespoons of salsa and drizzle a bit of the liquid around the edge. Decorate with extra chives.
