The sauce was YUMMY- but I was not overly impressed with the chicken...so it gets 4 stars, not 5. I made this just as written (the photo must have more then 1/4 cup shallots in it! or they used onions). I served it with instant couscous (Near East brand- roast garlic and olive oil flavor) and I could have eaten bowls and bowls of the couscous with the sauce on it!!! But the chicken was kind of bland compared to it. Next time I think I will add the shallots and balsamic and let it cook into the chicken a little longer, so that it has the same flavor as the sauce. This needs a little tweek- but for as quick as it is to throw together, you can't beat it!! I want to try it with onions too, just to see if the shallots really make a difference- I will let you know.
This was phenomenal! The sauce was delicious, and it was incredibly easy to make. You have to be careful, though, once you add the vinegar, because it cooks down very quickly. I'm definitely making these again. Thanks, mickie! Addendum: This has turned into a regular dinner here. Simple to make, and my gf, who normally (or abnormally, depending on your point of view) doesn't like anything with a vinegar taste to it, loves this recipe.
I made this recipe just now (with some modifications, thus the lower star rating) and thought it tasted good. I made this with 4 chicken breast Then I made the sauce with 1/10 soy sauce and then added enough balsamic vinegar to reach 1/4 cup, a few tbsp of sugar, minced garlic and sliced scallions. Cooked the chicken as directed, drained oil and then placed chicken back into the pan, added the sauce and cooked for about 2 mins and then served over rice, along side braised carrots.
impressive,very easy, very good, low budget, 2 pounds makes enough for my family to have a full meal the next night. I don't use cooking spray so the first time i made this I used olive oil to lightly coat a cast iron pan I had to walk away from it and it got smoky and the chicken burned, so the next time I used a small amount of sesame oil and this was just fine with no added flavors
Wow!! You people weren't kidding, this IS an amazing recipe. Just like everyone says: easy and delicious. I used red onions instead of shallots, and drained some chicken grease out before adding them. Next time I'll try the shallots, but it was outstanding even with onions. BEST meal I've had in a long time. I'll be making this for company to show off a little you can bet! ;)
This was not good at all. The vinegar was too strong and overwhelming and it had a bland taste to it. I had to infuse honey in it to make it edible. I would not recommend balsamic vinegar in a dish like this if it's the main flavor ingredient.
I tried this for first time tonight and it was delicious. I took a tip from another review and seared the chicken first before adding to the onions. Also I used bone in thighs and simmered for about an hour. This is a real keeper.
This is such an easy recipe. I made this for my family and we enjoyed it very much. I loved the sauce the vinegar makes, adds the right amount of zing to the chicken. I did add some poultry seasoning to the salt and pepper before cooking otherwise followed recipe exactly. Thank you for sharing, this is good and I will make again.
OMG! This was delicious. Even the picky kids gobbled it up. I will be making this again. Yummy!
I love this site and have found many wonderful recipes. I always like to look at the reviews and am continually blown out of the water when people give the recipes a bad review while adding they didn't follow the recipe. Why review something if you are not willing to try it as written. People are funny.
