With just 6 ingredients, Balsamic Glazed Chicken is a lot easier than it looks. Sweet, tangy, flavourful chicken. A perfect family get-together meal.
I’ve been obsessed with Balsamic vinegar in the past few months so I was determined to find a way to make a simple weeknight chicken meal with it. I found a sauce on Food Network Kitchen that I initially tried with steak and tweaked it to suit my taste. This recipe is simple, nothing really fancy, but tastes pretty darn good. And it presents beautifully with its rich, dark, glossy finish, making it nice for company too.
You can make the sauce and marinate the chicken ahead if you want, but it’s not necessary. I almost always use kosher chicken which is brined, flavourful and juicy. If you use regular chicken, I suggest sprinkling it with salt before tossing it with the balsamic glaze.
One other suggestion…if you like lots of sauce and want extra for the rice or potatoes you might serve with the chicken, just double the sauce in the recipe and simmer it for a bit longer.
Try serving the Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Broccoli Apple Slaw with Avocado Dressing, Super Easy Potato Knishes, Red Quinoa Salad with Roasted Carrots and Beets and/or Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Peppers, Eggplant and Apples.
