My family did not care for this at all. The flavor was bland, even with the good balsamic vinegar. I used fresh rosemary, two teaspoons was too much. The color was unappetizing as well. Total waste of my time and ingredients.
I found this recipe on eatingwell.com and really wanted to try it. Iâ€™m so glad I did! We loved all the complex flavors that really matched well to this dish. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs that I sliced up, so it took a little longer to cook. Try this recipe; I think you will like it. PS. Donâ€™t use your expensive balsamic for this recipe.
For a change, I made this dish without changing anything. It was really good. I like the extra "bite" that the balsamic vinegar adds.
