    justcallmetoni's Note:

    A wonderful recipe for chicken featuring balsamic vinegar. What sets this apart from others is the surprise inclusion of that distinctly American condiment, catsup. Together these create a delicious sweet and sour combination. This Cooking Light inspired dish is just 4 points per serving. For Core followers, count 1/2 point per serving for the wine or substitute with additional broth.

      Terrific chicken! I used the s/b thighs. The sweetness from the ketchup balances the balsamic vinegar. Tarragon makes it even better! I completely forgot to add the 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes, but it really is just finr without them. Thanx for a great new lowfat chicken recipe!

      Absolutely delicious and so easy to make! I served this with A Really Good Tomato Recipe. If I were serving this with rice, pasta or mashed potatoes, I would definitely recommend doubling the sauce to pour over. Thank you for sharing this. My partner and I eat a lot of chicken, and having new and tasty ways to prepare it is appreciated!

      This is my DH's rating. I wanted to give 3 stars. He said 3.5 isn't fair either, so here we are with 4! This is a super easy recipe, undoubtedly. And, as he said, it's is VERY tough to find chicken breast recipes that aren't boring. For me, it was just ordinary though. I think I expected more from the flavors. Having said that, it is so easy and you can definitely taste all the ingredients. I was surprised at the sweetness of the ketchup coming through. One change that I made was to cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Just a preference for us. Also loved the lack of butter/oil. Thank you for sharing.
