      Outstanding! Would give this another star if I could. It does take a little time to make the sauce, as it does need the full reduction time to get the best flavor. Used chicken quarters, but put them under the broiler for 5 minutes on each side before turning down the heat to finish. Will definitely have this again. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Alan.

      This was a very tasty sauce...maybe a bit too tart...but maybe not. It was actually excellent, but I need to tweak it a bit...not sure how though. I really enjoyed this, as did my guests.

      I saw Giada on the Food Network make this recipe and had bookmarked it. I used chicken breasts for this and cooked on the grill over medium heat for 8 mins on each side. Pleasantly surprised with the flavor-- I was a bit leery about using balsamic vinegar in a BBQ sauce. The DBF ate it all up! Thanks for posting on Zaar so I could rate it!
