    Malriah's Note:

    My own adaptation of Mirj's Garlic Chicken Breasts in Balsamic Vinegar (#15507) for those that like a little less of the vinegar flavor and a little more spice.

      This dish is very flavorful, with a rich sauce. I used the honey instead of sugar, and we did not have the rice; just served it with a salad. A very enjoyable meal.

      THANK YOU!!! This was YUMMY!!! We used pork loin instead of chicken. I think if we just had a bowl of rice and the sauce we would have been just as happy :o) This is a great work night dinner...easy but definitely satisfying. I was a little heavy handed on the balsamic and garlic because we love those flavors. This is a keeper without a doubt!

      Good dish! It has really nice flavor and the sesame oil is a great touch. I used honey and cut the pepper flakes by 1/2 (feeding kids here). Next time I think I'll cut down on the broth -I had enough sauce for 8 chicken breasts. I will also cut back on the garlic - we LOVE it but it was a bit more than my stomach could handle. Your adaptation of Mirj's recipe is really good. Thanks for sharing.
