January 18, 2018

This would be great for the weekend! Add big flavor to baked chicken with a balsamic vinegar marinade and a sprinkle of feta cheese. To avoid overcooking, insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast.

Each week one of the 100+ tasty video recipes from the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program is featured on the Mayo Clinic News Network, just in time for you to try at the weekend. You can also have the recipes delivered via the Mayo Clinic App.
