About: I have always loved being creative - from glitter construction cards as a kid, to trying new / hard recipes (fortune cookies, bread in an oven my mom swore didn't make bread, chocolate bowls, to name a few, al…

The balsamic vinegar & honey added a nice light touch of flavor to
the chicken, and the quinoa & strawberry, goat cheese and nut salad were both a perfect compliment.

time: about 1 hour (marinade the night before)

serves 4

Ingredients:

2.5 good sized boneless & skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced, plus more for garnish

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

1) The night before. Cut off any extra fat from the chicken breasts and then cut into 1 inch chunks and place in a gallon ziplock bag.

2) Mix all of the remaining ingredients together and pour into the gallon bag with the chicken. Mush around and refrigerate overnight.

Step 2: Cook the Chicken!

The day of.


1) Soak 3-4 wooden skewers in a shallow dish filled with water while getting the grill, quinoa and salad ready.

2) Right before the grill is ready, thread the chicken pieces onto the water-soaked wooden skewers.

3) Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook until no longer pink, turning over so all sides get charred.

strawberries

Step 4: Eat It!
