Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil.
Place the chicken on the preheated grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
Make the Cherry Balsamic Glaze:
While the chicken is grilling, prepare the cherry balsamic glaze.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the pitted and halved cherries, balsamic vinegar, honey, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the cherries are soft and the sauce has thickened. Stir occasionally.
Glaze the Chicken:
During the last few minutes of grilling, generously brush the cherry balsamic glaze over each side of the chicken breasts.
Continue to grill for an additional 1-2 minutes per side, allowing the glaze to caramelize slightly on the chicken.
Remove the glazed chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
Drizzle any remaining glaze over the chicken before serving.
Garnish the grilled chicken with additional fresh cherry halves and a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs like parsley or basil for added freshness and visual appeal.
Serve with Sides:
Pair the grilled balsamic cherry glazed chicken with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, quinoa, or a fresh green salad.
