- 1 lb. chicken breasts
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar good quality
- ¼ cup chicken broth regular sodium
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- ½ tsp. salt to taste
- ¼ tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. rosemary fresh, finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- Pound chicken breasts to 1-inch thick and cut into 4-ounce portions.
- In a medium-sized bowl whisk together vinegar, broth, honey, garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Reserve ½ cup of marinade and add remaining ~¼ cup to a 1-gallon ziplock bag with the chicken breasts.
- Marinate for 15-30 minutes.
- In a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat add oil and chicken, letting excess marinade drip off of it before adding to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. (Check with a meat thermometer.)
- Meanwhile, in a separate, small saucepan or skillet add remaining balsamic marinade and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and then reduce heat to simmer.
- Let balsamic vinegar mixture simmer for 10 minutes or until it is reduced by half and forms a glaze.
- Serve cooked chicken breasts with balsamic glaze and enjoy!
- You can substitute pure maple syrup or agave nectar for the honey.
- Fresh thyme or basil will work well in place of the rosemary. Dried herbs will also be a good substitution for the fresh rosemary.
