If you love chicken as much as I do, this recipe will easily crawl up to the top of your favorite chicken recipes too. This recipe is a one pan meal with tender and juicy chicken, glazed in a sweet and tangy balsamic sauce, paired with crunch and tender vegetables. This is one delicious meal you do not want to miss out on. Adding a balsamic glaze is an awesome way to take plain chicken, fancy it up and incorporate amazing flavors. Also, it tastes extraordinary! Think of it as a complete recipe in one meal, because really… it is. It is perfect for lunch, a light dinner or an in between meal to munch on, and makes a mighty impressive presentation. However, you could add a side of potatoes or another vegetable to round up the meal. Comment below and let me know what you thought of the recipe.
