To cure myself from the mundane chicken blues; I have been experimenting with sauces and glazes and came up with the idea to make Balsamic Glazed Chicken Breasts. I received a really gorgeous salad set and ton’s of Ken’s products, including their Balsamic Vinaigrette which I used for this recipe.
The glaze is my favorite part of this dish because it really elevates basic chicken breasts and makes them more sophisticated. It’s sweet, yet tangy and full of flavor!
Honestly, this recipe couldn’t be any simpler to make. I literally threw all of the ingredients in a large bowl, covered it, and let it marinade in the fridge overnight. Cooking it was also a breeze because I baked the chicken in the oven, and the glaze naturally formed in the pan. I cannot wait to make these chicken breasts again! Dinner at my house has not been the same since I last made these! Check out the recipe below.
