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.

  1. 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!
