Time to say good-bye to boring ol’ chicken breast and hello to it’s fancy cousin – the Red Rooster. Grilled Chicken with Strawberries, Feta and Pecans is sure to be a hit with your family this spring!
Raise your hand if you couldn’t be more ready for grilling season?
How about strawberry season?
I am completely ready for both. Go ahead and try to stop me from enjoying both…at the same time.
There’s a restaurant near where we live that has an entree on the menu called Red Rooster – strawberry glazed chicken with feta and walnuts. It’s pretty much the classic Strawberry Salad turned main dish. It is an excellent way to dress up an ordinary grilled chicken breast and it couldn’t be more simple!
I really like to bulk grill a bunch of marinated chicken breast and use it in different meals throughout the week or bag it up in 2 cup portions to freeze for an easy addition to meals like Balsamic Chicken Noodle Bowl, Chicken Salad Sliders, Bruschetta Chicken Pasta or Quinoa Chicken Fried Rice. I usually grab a bottle of Italian or balsamic dressing (or make my own) and let the chicken marinate for a couple of hours before I throw it on the grill – it’s so easy and keeps the meat tender and amazing.
To make the Red Rooster, you will simply top grilled chicken with strawberry all-fruit spread or jam, sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and chopped pecans and add sliced strawberries. It’s a terrific combination, one that your family is sure to love. We enjoyed it with baked potatoes and roasted broccoli - deeeelicious!
