"Very good! Needed to cook longer than the time in the recipe."

"I cut this recipe in half for just my husband and I and we loved it! I had never browned chicken before, but this turned out so well! The chicken came out of the oven very juicy and tender. I didn't have an oven-safe skillet, so I did everything in a normal skillet, then transferred it all to an 8x8 dish (w/ the bottom greased with butter). It took a bit longer than I think it normally would have, but nothing too crazy. The strawberries really brought out the balsamic flavor. I will definitely make this again!"

"Oh, baby! This was good stuff! The sauce was excellent, and the chicken was very tender. I saved the leftover sauce to use on something else. I couldn't bring myself to throw it out!"

"We like dark meat, so I made this with thighs. I adjusted the baking time to allow for thicker bone-in pieces and it was an instant success."
