BALSAMIC-GLAZED CHICKEN BREASTS

 

  • Cooking Time: 55
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp dried rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Directions

  • Combine the balsamic, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, rosemary, and garlic cloves, in a large, re-sealable plastic bag.
  • Shake and squeeze the contents of the bag to dissolve the honey and the brown sugar.
  • Add the chicken to the bag and seal with as little air as possible in the bag.
  • Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place the chicken drumsticks on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake until the skin is caramelized and very dark in spots, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place the marinade in a small saucepan.
  • Bring the marinade to a boil (in order to kill bacteria).
  • Reduce the heat to simmer and cook over low heat until thick, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Reserve.
  • Use a pastry brush to brush some of the cooked marinade on the cooked chicken.
  • Plate the chicken on top of a spoonful of sauce and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Notes

A very rich and flavorful way to un-rut your everyday grilled chicken breasts!

The glaze is wonderfully tasty - I found myself dipping everything on my plate into it.
