Cooking quick tips to make sure the chicken is cooked perfectly and safely:

Crafting the perfect chicken dish can be intimidating but it doesn't have to be! Before cooking with chicken, make sure you buy your meat from a reputable source. After handling raw poultry, wash your hands and surfaces thoroughly with soap and hot water to help prevent getting sick. For cooking safety, always use a clean food thermometer to measure the internal temperature of the chicken; it should register at least 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the breast or thigh. When cooking with ground chicken, bring the temperature up to 165 degrees F throughout the entire product. Mastering these cooking tips will guarantee perfection when cooking with chicken every time.

Tips for Meal Prepping – How to prep strawberries, chicken breasts, fresh basil, and balsamic glaze ahead of time

Prepping meals ahead of time is an enjoyable activity for some and a huge time-saver for others! If you are one of these folks, then meal-prepping strawberries, chicken breasts, fresh basil, and balsamic glaze can be done quickly and easily.

Wash off your strawberries and store them in an air-tight container

For the chicken breasts, marinate them overnight for juicy tenderness when cooking.

To keep the fresh basil perky and fragrant, wrap it up in a damp cloth or paper towel and refrigerate it – but don’t forget to take it out before it wilts!


Finally, you can make your balsamic glaze by simmering it in a warm pan on low heat until reduced. Prepping these ingredients ahead of time saves both time and energy - making it a perfect way to make life simpler!





4 organic chicken breasts

1 Package of Organic Strawberries, quartered

I cup of fresh basil, Chopped

1 cup balsamic vinegar (can be strawberry balsamic )

1 tsp Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener

Juice of 1 lemon

Organic Avocado oil Spray

2 teaspoons of Organic Avocado Oil

Celtic Sea Salt


Extra Virgin Olive Oil





Repeat after me: I will let the chicken come to room temperature before cooking!!! The most important part!

Turn on either a cast iron (best) or non-stick pan over med-high heat and let the pan warm up with NO oil yet.

Meanwhile, wrap the chicken breast in plastic wrap and beat it with anything you can find. Preferably a rolling pin or a meat tenderizer (I’m not judging though) until the breast are flat-chested.

Pat the chicken dry and season generously with salt and pepper.

Swirl the avocado oil in the already hot pan and the chicken breasts to get a little crust on each side. Turn the heat down low and continue cooking/flipping until the chicken is done being sure not to overcook and cook for 8-10 more minutes.

Puréed Strawberries:

Spray a small non-stick pan with avocado oil and sauté 1 cup of the quartered strawberries until they are carmelized and soft. Set aside

Balsamic Reduction:

Take 1 cup of balsamic vinegar, the juice of 1 lemon, and 1 tsp of monk fruit sweetener and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the liquid has reduced to a sludgy glaze.

Plate it:

Place the chicken on plate and layer it with the puréed strawberries, 1 cup of uncooked strawberries, sprinkled basil, and finally drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Enjoy!!
