Top Tips for Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

- I'm not big on using oil, but butter has a low smoke point. To avoid using oil, I put a few spoonfuls of water or broth in the pan with the butter. Replenish as needed. This also makes for tender chicken.
- Also, using a good cast iron pan, or a heavy bottom stainless steel pan makes it easier to cook without oil.
