This flavorful garlic balsamic chicken comes together in 15 minutes and uses only one skillet for easy clean-up. Balsamic glazed chicken pairs perfectly with the sweet tang of cherry tomatoes in this simple yet elegant dish.



1.5 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen® Olive Oil
5 clove sliced garlic
3.5 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen® Balsamic Vinegar
23 Tbsp. chicken broth
1.5 Tbsp. coconut aminos
2 Tbsp. basil, sliced into ribbons
1 cup cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper
More fresh basil for garnish


Pound the chicken breasts between two pieces of parchment using a meat mallet until they are uniform in thickness, about 1/4-inch thick.

Season both sides of the breasts liberally with salt and pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the sliced garlic and stir until the garlic is fragrant. Place the chicken breasts in the pan and brown for 2 minutes on each side.

Add the balsamic vinegar and coconut aminos. Bring the mixture to a boil, then flip over the chicken again and reduce the heat to a simmer.

Add the broth, tomatoes, and sliced basil, and give the pan a gentle shake.

Continue cooking over medium heat on the stovetop, turning the chicken every minute or so to coat it in the balsamic mixture. Add a small amount of extra broth as needed to keep the skillet from drying out.

Cook until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the tomatoes are soft. Garnish with more fresh basil and enjoy!
