Recipe: Paleo Balsamic Chicken with Strawberry Kiwi Salsa...

This recipe must've been good. I didn't get a "blogable" pronouncement from the husband. Rather, he refused to stop chewing, but gave me the thumbs-up while nodding. Same thing?

Serve this dish with mashed sweet potatoes (throw in some cinnamon and butter) for a delightful summer dinner. As below, this serves 4

Paleo Balsamic Chicken with Strawberry Kiwi Salsa


4 chicken breasts
1/2 Cup balsamic vinegar
4 Tbsp grapeseed oil
1 lbs strawberries, diced
3-4 kiwi, peeled and diced
1 jalepeno, diced and seeded
Juice of 2 limes
4 green onions


Using a meat mallet, pound the chicken breasts to approximately 1/2 inch thick. Place in a dish. Mix together the balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp grapeseed oil. Pour over chicken breasts, and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.

In a separate bowl, mix together strawberries, kiwi and jalepeno. Add lime juice. Allow to stand in the fridge while you cook the chicken.

Chop the green onions, and add to a pan along with the remaining 2 Tbsp of grapeseed oil. Cook on medium-high heat until onions are fragrant. Cook each chicken breast for 3-5 minutes per side.  (Careful, the oil will splatter quite a bit).  Allow chicken to drain on a cooling rack, or pat with a towel. Top with strawberry kiwi salsa, and enjoy!
