Instructions

For grilled balsamic and honey chicken

  • In the Foodsaver preserve and marinate container, combine chicken breast, honey and salt and marinate for 12 minutes.
  • Once marinated, heat grill to 425 degrees and allow it to come to temperature.
  • Oil grill plates with a paper towel then add chicken to grill and cook 5 to 8 minutes per side depending on thickness of each chicken breast.
  • While chicken cooks, reduce the same balsamic marinade on the stove in a saucepan to serve as a glaze. Glaze is done when it can fully coat the back of spoon. Usually done after reducing on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Chicken is done when you can carefully touch the thickest part of the chicken and there is no resistance. Use a meat thermometer to be sure chicken has reached 165 degrees F.

For strawberry feta salad

  • Assemble salad, by first placing greens in a salad bowl, scatter sliced strawberries on top then feta cheese and top with thinly sliced chicken breast.
  • Lastly, drizzle balsamic glaze all over the top of the chicken and greens.
  • Save leftover chicken breast in your Foodsaver preserve and marinate container.
