"I invented this one night when these were the only ingredients I had on hand. It's the first time my husband ever raved--and I mean RAVED--about my cooking. He was still talking about it days later! Serve over noodles if desired."

I have made this recipe several times now and my husband and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. After the first time, I made some changes and fine tuned it with much success. I did the following: 1)I sauted the onions at medium heat, it takes too long on low heat and they don't soften enough. 2)I covered the chicken/onion mixture with only a drizzle of balsamic and stock, and prepare the sauce while it bakes(is quicker that way) 3)I simmered the sauce until it had reduced by half, then I added 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp dijon mustard to thicken. Used a whisk to combine them, and then poured over chicken and baked 5 more minutes. Also, it is great with pork chops as well, and the sauce marries nicely with baked asparagus too! Thanks for sharing!
My husband and I thought it was okay, but I will go to the trouble of making it again.
WONDERFUL!!! What a hit! I changed just a few things just like in someone before post. I used boneless skinless chicken breast just because we prefer these. I made recipe as it said until you put it in the oven. I put the chicken in a oven dish, added HALF the stock and just a drizzle of the Balsamic, covered and put in oven. I put the remaining stock and 1/2 cup of Balsamic in a pan on stove. I boiled until it reduced by half. I then added 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of spicy mustard. You probably could use a dijon like someone else had suggested, its just what i had on hand. I mixed that to thicken it a bit, poured it over the chicken, and let it cook for the remaining 10 minutes. This is a "make'er again", for sure!! Thank you.
I was looking for an onion/balsamic vinegar/chicken dish and found this one to be closest to what my taste buds were looking for. Although I did change it up a little bit. I used chicken breasts sliced into medallions, which I seasoned w/ S&P and coated in flour. I caramelized the onions in one pan and sauteed the chicken in another. Once the onions were done I added the liquids and brought it up to a simmer and added the cooked chicken. Then I simmered everything for 20 - 30 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce. I left out the tomatoes because I didn't have any and my children probably wouldn't eat them. Next time I will add them for flavor and just remove the tomatoes from my children's servings. A final thought, use REALLY GOOD vinegar for best results. I would give it 5 stars but I felt I altered the recipe too much to do so.
This was delicious. Some parts of the recipe did not work out exactly as the recipe explained. For example the chicken took much longer to cook then 20 minutes and the balsamic vinegar/chicken stock mixture never really thickened for me. I added the sundried tomatoes to the balsamic vinegar mixture and they were soft by the time the dish was done. Thank you for a delicious recipe!!
This was very tasty. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and I cut the onions into larger chunks. The sauce helped to keep the chicken moist while it cooked. I used the extra broth mixture to make couscous as a side dish and it was unbelievably good! Good low carb meal too.
3 words..Oh My God! This recipe is fabulous. The onions and garlic take over the place, but the balsamic vinegar mellows the flavour. Used chicken breast instead of thighs and they were tender and juicy. Two thumbs up!
This was great. My Husband loved this recipe.
I made a few modifications. I added mushrooms at the same time as the garlic. Used chicken breasts instead of leq guarters. The breasts were tender and extremely flavorful.
I also used sun-dried tomatoes with basil in them and added the tomatoes to the chicken broth and vinegar.
Thank you for the great recipe. I will be making this again.
