    Vanessa7's Note:

    I was thinking about what to cook for tomorrow and I remembered a balsamic-glazed chicken I had in 2 different Italian restaurants. I decided to look for a "similar" recipe and found this one by Giada De Laurentiis. I have not tried it...but will soon! I'll let you know! (Courtesy of FoodNetwork)

      Love Giada DeLaurentiis but not this recipe. In the first ten minutes of cooking, my oven was full of smoke and the fire alarm was screaming! I turned the oven back to 400F, changed the burnt foil to fresh and started again. It still was charring at 400F so I was not impressed. I followed exactly as written and since I had a thermometer in the oven at the time, I know the temperature was correct. After salvaging what I could, I would say there was too much vinegar flavour to it for our tastes. (And the charred flavour wasn't so great either.) Oh well, love her Italian food anyways.

      Thankyou for putting this on Recipezaar. My family ate them up so quick. My family tends to be a little picky, either hubby likes it or kids like it, but rarely the whole family. Yeah, another one that I can make and know everyone will enjoy.
