  1. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, sugar, garlic, and Italian seasoning in a bowl, place the chicken breasts in the marinade, and marinate for 10 minutes on each side.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Place the chicken in the heated pan and cook until they start to brown and are no longer pink inside, about 7 minutes per side. Pour the marinade into the skillet, and cook until it thickens slightly, turning the chicken breasts over once or twice, about 5 minutes.

I marinated the chicken for about an hour. The only change I made was using brown sugar in place of the white sugar and Garlic & Wine Seasoning in place of the Italian. We grilled the chicken an...

If you love balsamic vinegar, you'll like this recipe for chicken. Fantastic marinade as I let the chicken bath for like 3 hours, it definitely made it more tender and moist when I finished brai...

I followed the recipe to the letter and it produced the most beautiful, moist flavorful white meat chicken. Wonderful alternative to the teriyaki/soy marinades. Thanks for posting.

This was Delicious! We have tried many chicken marinades and this is one of the best...did not change one thing. The sugar made it baste so perfectly!

This is a great recipe, unfortunately on my first try I was able to get the sauce to reduce because I let the chicken marinate too long, but on my second try it came out very well.
