You can make this Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken with or without the Balsamic Strawberries but I highly recommend you don’t skip them because this combination is incredibly delicious. The chicken is so flavorful from the marinade and the strawberries add a burst of tangy sweetness that completes this dish. I like to serve it over fresh arugula and pile on extra strawberries because why not!


1.5 lbs chicken breast or thighs, boneless, I like Rastelli's
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup basil, fresh, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 cups strawberries, diced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp date syrup (or 3 dates puréed - whole30)
