I know it sounds like a strange combination, but it will surprise you with its sweet zesty flavor. I love trying new mixes and this one really struck a chord. My husband loves it, too! (Now, if I could just get the rest of my family to try it, lol.) This recipe was modified from a magazine to suit us.

We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this chicken with strawberry sauce. While the ingredients are unusual, both sweet and savory, they are delicious together. These chicken breasts would make a nice summer dinner served over rice. Or, slice and top a green salad.

How To Make chicken with strawberry sauce

Test Kitchen Tips
If you do not want as much of a minty flavor, cut the mint back to 1/2 tsp.
  • Chicken breasts sprinkled with seasoning.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare the chicken breasts for baking, Pat the meat dry. Lightly sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Seasoned chicken in a baking dish.
    Spray a non-stick cooking spray in a baking pan. Add the seasoned chicken.
  • Baking the chicken.
    Bake chicken for 20 minutes on one side.
  • Corn starch, sugar, nutmeg, and water in a saucepan.
    While chicken bakes, mix corn starch, sugar, and nutmeg with 1/2 cup of water. Mix well.
  • Adding strawberries and wine to the saucepan.
    Add strawberries and wine to the sauce. Bring to a boil.
  • Simmering the strawberry mixture.
    Once the sauce is boiling, reduce the heat. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Mint added to the saucepan.
    Then add the mint.
  • Brushing some of the sauce onto the chicken.
    When the chicken had baked for 20 minutes, turn it over and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Continue to bake for 15 - 20 more minutes until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees F.
  • Baked chicken removed from the oven.
    When chicken is 165 degrees F, brush with SOME of the sauce (I use 1/4 or less) and continue to bake for 5 - 7 more minutes.
  • Chicken With Strawberry Sauce over rice.
    Spoon more of the sauce over and serve. I think white rice or wild rice is perfect under this! Any leftover sauce (we always have some) can be served over ice cream (hey, it's no weirder than over chicken!). We are also going to try it over baked brie.
