    CarolAT's Note:

    This Mediterranean-inspired recipe was posted in my local paper. This chicken has a flavorful, tangy glaze that takes advantage of pre-seasoned tomato paste and the complex sweet acidity of balsamic vinegar. Enjoy.

      We made this chicken last night for a BBQ we were having. It was a hit! The chicken was very flavorful and done to perfection. I used all chicken thighs, as I found a 5 lb package. The only modification I made was to use organic tomato paste, as one of my guests has Celiac's and the basil and garlic pastes that were not organic contained gluten. Therefore, we added some basil and garlic to the sauce. This recipe is a keeper and one I will make again. Thanks!

      Don't know how I missed this during the tour, but sure am glad I'm still going through all the cookbooks. This was incredible!! I used whole chickens split down the backs and used my oven on 425F (don't have a grill). This sauce will go into my permanent recipe file. Thnx for posting, Carol.

      Love the slight tangy taste of this dish and the ease of of preparation. It's so flavorful and each bite I had was like oohs and ahhhs..I served it with our left over from lunch- Arroz Al Horno (Baked Spanish Rice). Great combination. I scraped off the extra sauce and added it to the chicken later on to make the flesh tangier and used extra virgin olive oil in this recipe. Wonderful dish! Muchas gracias for another great recipe, CarolAT! Made for ZWT5 Spain/Portugal trip.
