  • 4 8-oz chicken breasts (I get my chicken from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper

Balsamic Berry Salsa

  • 1 cup strawberries hulled and chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries whole
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey optional, substitute date paste for whole30 or leave out for keto


Grilled Chicken

  • Preheat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Pat the chicken breasts dry and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the olive oil to the cast iron skillet, and put the chicken in skin side down (if it has skin) and sear for 8-10 minutes until golden. Flip, and cook another 5-8 minutes until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165ºF.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and rest for 5 minutes.

Balsamic Berry Salsa

  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl, and toss to combine. Taste, and add more honey/salt/balsamic/mint to suit your personal taste.


  • Serve the chicken warm topped with the balsamic berry salsa.
  • Leftovers will keep for 1 week in an airtight container.
