Easy, delicious, quick, stove top! All my favorite phrases in one recipe....what could be better? I had "Honey Ginger White Balsamic Vinegar" I had bought from one of those specialty shops and was looking for a recipe. I kept the chicken seasoning the same and omitted the basil in the glaze, and it came out perfect if you like sweet (which we do). I would make extra glaze next time for dipping or pouring over my sides....probably would take a bit longer to reduce but would be worth it. As always, the quality of the vinegar probably has a significant impact on the outcome. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!

I thought this had wonderful flavor. I put the chicken over rice and poured some of the sauce over the chicken. It was fabulous!

This is a super-fast, delicious recipe. I add more honey and cut back the balsamic vinegar. It's my husband's favorite chicken!

This recipe was disappointing. I expected it to have a lot of flavor and it was actually kind of bland.

I made 4 servings easily just by doubling the glaze ingredients. My husband liked it so much he had seconds for dinner and took the leftovers for lunch the next day. Already marked as one of my favorite recipes. This chicken would also be great in a salad with candied pecans.
