Chicken with balsamic vinegar is heaven on a plate. This is a very easy dish that easily impresses. Serve with plain white rice.

This recipe is excellent! After adding the leeks carrots and red pepper I found it needed to simmer for about 15 mins rather than 8 but maybe I cut the vegies too thickly. Only other thing I changed was to blend two teaspoons of cornflour with the Balsamic to make a thicker sauce. Its a keeper, thanks Mirjam!
