  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped roma tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 3-4 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in half horizontally
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • cup balsamic glaze **see note


  • In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and basil together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the chicken.
  • Season the chicken with the 2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp kosher salt,  and pepper to taste. You can then cook the chicken on the grill or in a skillet with a little olive oil.
  • Top chicken with the tomato mixture and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serves 4.


To make your own balsamic glaze, add 1 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp sweetener (I use Splenda but sugar or honey can be used) to a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then turn down to medium low. Lightly simmer, stirring occasionally for 7 to 10 minutes until it has reduced in half and has started to thicken. You want it to coat the back of a spoon.
