    The chicken was easy to prepare but I did not like the thyme in the sauce. Maybe it's a personal preference....but I enjoyed the balsamic & onions. I could have eaten it with more sauce, less thyme in it.

    My husband told me this recipe is a keeper. We both loved the slightly sweet sauce. I will be making this recipe again soon.
