A simple classic balsamic glaze that goes well with chicken, pork or even a drizzle over tomatoes
When things like balsamic vinegar can be reduced down to something so sweet and tasty I’m in aw. With some patience and TLC this glaze will amaze, promise! The kids like to dip grilled chicken into something, and its usually in ranch dressing. Not my favorite kind of meal. My picky eater doesn’t really like chicken. His name should have been “Mikey”… like the guy from the old Life cereal commercial. Except his name is Mason. When he gets his dinner in front of him and he actually takes a bite, and then goes for the second bite- thats when I say to myself “Hey Mason, he likes it!”
This is a simple classic balsamic glaze that is one of my go to meals because I always have these ingredients on hand. Most importantly, everyone in my family likes it!
Store left over glaze in a glass jar for a week and its great on salads, especially tomatoes!
6 medium chicken breast
2 cups Balsamic Vinegar
2 tablespoons Raw Honey
2 Cloves of Garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
FOR THE GRILLED CHICKEN:
Brush chicken breasts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes on each side until fully cooked and no longer pink on the inside.
FOR THE BALSAMIC GLAZE:
At medium heat, add olive oil to a non stick skillet and add chopped garlic. Cook garlic for about 3 minutes until soft.
Add the balsamic vinegar and turn to low and start to simmer. Continue the simmer stirring occasionally for about 12-15 minutes, until it reaches a syrup consistency.
Add the raw honey and stir to combine.
Slice the chicken into 1/4 inch slices, if desired, and drizzle with the honey garlic balsamic glaze.
