It’s a light and refreshing dish that comes together quickly with really fresh ingredients

It’s an elegant dish packed with so much flavor and it’s really easy to prepare

Baked chicken is a little more hands-off as you can throw everything in the oven

A balsamic reduction is made by simmering balsamic vinegar in a saucepan until it reduces and thickens

You’re essentially evaporating the water rendering a thicker sauce

Bring about 1/2 a cup of balsamic vinegar to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes

You can expedite the chilling process by placing the pan in an ice bath

A splash of warm water will help thin the sauce if it gets too sticky

Preheat your grill, clean the grates well, and lightly oil the grates with olive oil

Cook chicken breast on medium heat for 5-7 minutes per side or until chicken is no longer

I like to use roughly 3/4 inch thick slices of chicken for best results

Dried basil cannot be substituted—it’s just not the same in terms of flavor

Larger, thicker chicken breasts should be sliced in half to yield two thinner slicers

Place on a baking sheet/dish and bake for 15-18 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165°F

Remove from the heat, drizzle with balsamic and sprinkle with chopped fresh basil
