Y’all know by now how much I love simple recipes. While I enjoy spending the day in the kitchen preparing meals for my family, it’s just not reasonable for me to do that as often as I’d like. On those days, I love to pull out recipes I know I can prepare in a short amount of time that provide a ton of flavor. This balsamic chicken does the trick! In 30 minutes, my family can sit down to a meal that tastes like I’ve been in the kitchen all afternoon.

Here’s how I make it.

Recipe Review


  1. This sounds utterly delightful, Robyn. I love recipes like this that you just know you’ve got the fixins for and can have on the table as quickly as you think of it. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I’m with ya on the simple recipes! This sounds so yummy too! I adore balsamic vinegar! Can’t wait to try it!

  3. I’m a simple meal kind of girl too. I like when things come together quickly in the kitchen.

  4. Quick meals are always great for busy nights. We love balsamic vinegar here, so this looks like a great idea!

  5. Love balsamic, and anything I can do quick and easy with chicken is getting bookmarked for those hectic nights. Perfect.

  6. I have a quick chicken recipe that gets a bit overused. I’m going to mix this one in, as I know those flavors would go over well with my family. Thanks!
