READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Malriah

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.
