Chicken Breasts and Balsamic Vinegar

I needed a fast recipe for some boneless chicken, and this was it. Adapted a bit from a recipe I had, it was delicious. Suitable for just family, or company, too.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish, and dredge the chicken in it.
  • Heat oil in large skillet and cook the chicken until brown on one side (about 3-4 min).
  • Turn the chicken and add the garlic.
  • Cook 3 minutes more, while stirring the garlic around.
  • Add the broth, vinegar, bay leaves, and herbs.
  • Cover tightly, reduce heat to med-low, cook for about 10 minutes, turning chicken a couple of times. (When you get to the end of this step, you have a choice...you can proceed and reduce the sauce, or you can stop now after ADDING THE TBSP OF BUTTER. This way, you have more sauce, which is the way my husband likes it.)
  • When chicken is done, remove from pan.
  • Bring heat back up to med.
  • ,and cook the pan juices for 7 minutes, uncovered.
  • Stir in butter and remove bay leaves.
  • Spoon sauce over the chicken.
  • I served white rice on the side, and spooned a bit of sauce over that, too.
  • Yum.

    Great simple recipe, especially on a day you don't feel like cooking! I improvised a little on the recipe. I didn't have herb de provonce, so I used italian seasoning instead and it came out wonderful!

    Delicious! I browned the chicken with the garlic and then threw everything into the crockpot. Cooked on high for about 4 hours and then served with homemade french fries. Yum!

    Easy to prepare from my pantry items. Different flavour from my usual chicken recipes, will make again. Served wth couscous and green beans. Sauce went nicely over couscous. Attractive presentation. Thanks.

    Leeannr, this recipe is a keeper! I have been meaning to make this for ages and just now got around to making it. I used a recipe from Zaar for the herbs de provence. I didn't have any lavender for that, but I'm certain that isn't a huge deal. This was easy, aromatic and inexpensive. The chicken was fork tender. The sauce, with the combo of balsamic, garlic & herbs, is wonderful. I think I could eat it with a spoon! I served this with some yellow rice and had seconds (red face) Thanks for sharing, loved it!
