This basic recipe ends up too vinegary and rubbery. I took the base ingredients and tweaked the steps to make a better dish.
- Marinate Chicken in 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1 T low sodium soy sauce, salt, pepper. Grill, pan fry, or bake - however you prefer your chicken.
- Make a sweet potato mash with salt and pepper, and 1 t of brown sugar.
- Make a balsamic reduction of 1/2 cup vinegar (or more if you want to batch). I like to add 1 T of butter and 1 t of brown sugar to my reduction.
- Lay your cooked chicken on top of the sweet potato mash, and lightly drizzle with your reduction. Tasty!
the easiest way to make balsamic chicken is to use the first half cup as an overnight marinade, then bake the chicken (or grill it) then return pour the other half cup to serve. It is especially wonderful cold the next day and cut up into a salad. As for this recipe, baking chicken breasts at 400 covered for 40 minutes is way too much time. The breasts will stew or be rubbery, sometimes both. Easier to pan fry covered about ten minutes on each side with a medium to low flame.
My husband loved it! Chicken was sooo tender and flavorful. I put brown sugar and soy sauce into balsamic vinegar. I only baked chicken for 30 min and kept heat on 400. I also used regular potatoes because I didn't have sweet potatoes and served plain broccoli as a side. I will definitely make this again!
I followed the advice of previous reviewers and didn't cook the chicken for quite so long - maybe more like 30 min. Also, I added a little paprika to the chicken and rosemary & thyme to the potatoes. Really tasty and really easy!
This recipe was very quick and easy. I sauted chopped onions and browned the seasoned chicken. I also added pineapple apricot preserves to the balsamic vinegar, then reduced the sauce. I omitted the sweet potatoes. It was very yummy!
We really liked this recipe it's quick and very healthy. As suggested by another person, I could leave the chicken in balsamic vinegar for longer. To make the sweet potatoes crispy it needs to be cooked in a metal baking tray. I served it with steamed vegetables.
I found rhis dish easy, delicious, and healthy. My husband loved it. I sent it to my daughter and she and her husband liked it, too.
