How to make Raspberry Balsamic Chicken

I’ll try to make this short and sweet, just like this recipe!! You just need 8 simple ingredients, things you probably already have in your pantry, cupboards and refrigerator!! You’ve got this…let’s get started.

  1. Start by trimming and preparing the chicken. Season with salt and pepper
  2. In a cast iron skillet or saute pan over medium heat, add olive oil and allow to heat up until it moves easily in the pan. Add in the seasoned chicken and cook on both side for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan add in another tablespoon of olive oil and saute the chopped onion until transparent.
  5. Combine the balsamic vinegar and raspberry preserves.
  6. Pour into the skillet and deglaze the bottom of the pan by scrapping with a wooden spoon
  7. Simmer the sauce until it thickens a little and add back in the chicken.
  8. Cook for another 3-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through (165ºF internal temperature). I like to use an instant read thermometer to test the temperature.
  9. Add the basil and serve!

    Do you cut your chicken breasts before cooking? The store bought ones I used took a lot longer and I had to put them in the oven to cook through

    1. That is a great question. If the chicken breasts are extra large, then I will cut them in half to cut down on the cooking time. Hopefully they still tasted delicious.
