Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Bruschetta Topping

  • 1.5 cups diced fresh tomatoes
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Balsamic Drizzle

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup , omit for Whole30

Instructions
 

  • Combine all of the marinade ingredients (olive oil, balsamic, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and sea salt) in a bowl and whisk well. Add the chicken breasts to a large zip lock bag or shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over top. Let the chicken breasts marinate for a minimum of 2 hours (or overnight).
  • Mix up all of the bruschetta topping ingredients and store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Heat your grill to 425. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and discard any remaining marinade. Cook the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side, until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make your balsamic glaze. Add the balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to a small sauce pan, stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low/low and let it reduce while it simmers. Stir occasionally. This should take about 10-15 minutes. It will also thicken quickly as it sits off the heat.
  • Serve the chicken topped with the bruschetta topping and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Enjoy!
