Very nice. I had to cook my chicken for about 25 minutes on the medium low to get it done. The sauce was really good and different. I liked the taste of the balsamic vinegar a lot. Added a nice flavor to the chicken. Thanks

I loved this recipe. Made exactly as directed and would not change a thing. Love the balsamic vinegar with the chicken.

This is proof that a recipe does not need to be complicated in order to be delish. Very simple to make - 5 star restaurant in taste and flavor!
