    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is an interesting chicken breast entree ... the balsamic vinegar caramelizes nicely with the brown sugar and shallots. I was following a basic recipe and then started adding things to turn it into something completely different! Serve with mashed potatoes, definitely!

      Mmmm! The flavor of this dish was super. I loved the balance of flavors. I admit I got distracted and let mine get a little, shall we say, over-caramelized, but it was really good even so, just extra sticky. I'll be more vigilant next time and now I'll enjoy it even more.

      This was delicious. I used chicken thighs, because this is my favorite piece of chicken and I left out the liquid smoke (did not have any). The chicken was tender and very moist. Of course we will have leftovers tomorrow. Definitely a keeper! Thanks EdsGirlAngie
