Strawberry Pecan Glazed Chicken

Tis the season of strawberries. This is AWESOME! The Boy and I love strawberries, pecans and chicken in a salad, so I decided to marry the threesome in a skillet with a spritz of olive oil. Hot!

Strawberry Balsamic Dressing, Photo by Jenny MacBethYou can make your own balsamic dressing using strawberry preserves, but I like this dressing for two reasons. 1. It tastes yummy, and 2. It’s easier. Slice up a few fresh strawberries for garnish. Cut up as many as you like. I sliced four big berries.

Add some more squirts of the EVOO. While the chicken is cooking, roughly chop up a handful of pecans and one shallot. You can leave the pecans whole, but I think they go further if you chop them up.

Cook for another 10-15 minutes over medium heat, or until chicken is done. Keep adding EVOO, as needed. Hell! You can add a little Framboise to help the mixture from sticking to the pan. Whatever makes you happy. Live wild!

Secret Ingredient: Pair this chicken with a Lindemans Frambois. Serving for guests? Add sliced strawberries in the glass.
