This recipe was absolutely wonderful! I made my own dressing from Kittencal's Tomato Mozz Salad with Balsamic Dressing. I used halved cherry tomatoes from my garden instead of diced. I will be making this frequently!
There are so many balsamic Chicken recipes. I wanted one that had tomatoes and was served cold. This is exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I changed was that I added some red onion to the mixture. I loved this!!! Thank you Brother William.
I made this using rotini pasta, Poached Chicken Breast #101403, and Vinaigrette Dressing #184591. I had 1 serving warm when freshly made and it was very good. The second serving I had cold for lunch the next day and it was even better, the flavors more mingled. This is a keeper! Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for a great recipe Bill!
