This is a variation of a cuban dish. The balsamic vinegar gives it an exceptional flavor!

When a Maine-iac cooks Cuban food, what do you get? A fantast-iac dish! You are right, Balsamic vinegar works magic. I substituted leftover cooked ham and would recommend it instead of chicken. It's a keeper for sure.
