Tonight’s food prep was simply stunning! I never knew how satisfying and rewarding growing our own food would be until we raised our own chicken! Knowing what is, or particularly what isn’t, in food is the first step to eating healthy and our Chavis Farm pastured boneless skinless breasts are above par! I pan-seared them with evoo, basil, oregano & cracked pepper then tossed in fresh dug Irish potatoes seasoned with paprika & garlic along with some frozen California red grapes into my cast iron skillet and the rest is history….πŸ‡

I went hard in the kitchen tonight whipping up what will probably become my new favorite go-to chicken dish! The fruity flavor combinations were mouthwatering and aromatically succulent…for a second I thought I was in Rome!

Pan-seared {Chavis farm raised} chicken breast with strawberry balsamic glaze, seasoned Irish potatoes and roasted California red grapes!

The secret ingredient for this recipe is Strawberry Jam…homemade, store bought, whatever floats your boat! Mix 3 tbsp with one tbsp of your favorite BBQ sauce and a few dashes of aged balsamic vinegar. Stir until smooth and brush over chicken breasts during the last 10 minutes of baking. I had some leftover so I used it as dipping sauce for my carved meat and potatoes, it was THAT GOOD! πŸ˜‹πŸ‡

Fresh summer basil picked from my garden….I have soOo much coming off I froze some for later use! Hello Pesto! πŸ’š

Homemade Garlic Basil Blossom Red Wine Vinegar! This stuff should be incredible! I felt so bad removing the blooms from my basil plants because they were so fragrantly aromatic, but they had to go! Can’t wait to try this in a few weeks! 🌿🌺
