I loved this recipe. I made it spicy and it was fantastic with a cool salad on the side and saffron rice for lack of jasmine rice. Nice presentation for a quick meal for company on the fly. I was worried about the sweetness using balsamic as the primary liquid and I thought spicy would be nice. I added crushed red chili peppers to the bell peppers..it was fantastic. I was crunched for time so I used skinless chicken thighs whole instead of the breasts. I think it really enhanced the flavor (slthought adding calories aargh!). I also added most of the balsamic all at once turning the chicken once but mainly keeping the bottoms down to prevent the chicken from darkening too much in the balsamic.Also I'd like to note to keep an eye on the heat when you are 'finishing' the chicken as you dont want the balsamic to reduce too much. Good job all in all..thanks so much for the recipe..it's a keeper.Read More
It was okay.... but really it lacked a lot. It's nothing I would make again... and it's nothing I would even try to mold into something better... Next time I'll just look for a different recipe all together. Sad... because I LOVE Balsamic Vinegar!Read More

We enjoyed this very much. I made some modifications, however. To save time I used a bag of Japanese stir fry veggies (carrots, peppers, broccoli, and water chestnuts). I added a few shots of soy sauce to the mixture and seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning. It gave it a nice kick! A simple meal that tastes great for leftovers, too!
I substituted all the colored peppers with just green (it's all that I had) and it turned out great. All of the steps worked out well. Pre cooking the veggies could have been less or cut completely since they have to saute with the chicken an additional 20 minutes. the vinegar at the end adds a great kick!
This was pretty much perfect. We ate it over penne pasta and sprinkled a little parmesan on top. I used half regular balsamic, and half tomato-flavored balsamic and it was delicious. I know I will make this again.
This recipce is FANTASTIC! I didn't give it a 5, only because I like my food a little spicier, and also because I think the cooking times need to be adjusted. If you leave the peppers in as long as prescribed, you en up with very pretty mush. Instead, I add them towards the end. Other than that, this is DELICIOUS, and oh-so-easy!
This was a very simple dish to put together and it was really good. I used a little more basil than called for and a little less balsamic. Served it over rice. A definite keeper!
I followed the recipe exactly and found it to be very easy and very tasty. We enjoyed it for dinner over rice. It has a mild flavor, not overbearing at all. When browning the chicken I used plenty of S & P and I definately think this helped with the flavor. Also very good the next day as my son ate this for lunch. Its a keeper!
excellent!! I used balasamic vingrette salad dressing since I didn't have any balsamic vinegar, but just 2 tbsp added to the veggies before putting the chicken back in for about 25 mins to simmer. should have reduced the olive oil in light of that, but will do so next time if I use the salad oil again. super easy recipe and great flavor!!
Very flavorful! I used Greek Seasoning in place of basil, since I was out of it. Next time I will use this as a filler for tortillas.
I took license with the recipe and what I ended up with, at least for Hubs and me anyway, was nothing short of manna from heaven. I dredged the chicken in flour before sautéing it and, because I’m really not crazy about balsamic vinegar, I used white wine in its place. The chicken is velvety smooth and fork tender. A little lemon might be nice, but this was fine just as is. Using just picked, mild and sweet bell peppers from my garden made this particularly delicious. I served this with “Spaghetti and Bacon,” also from this site, and sliced garden fresh tomatoes from my garden. In my mind it just doesn’t get any better than this.
Simple preparation. Colorful presentation. Pleasing to the eye and to the palate.
It was okay.... but really it lacked a lot. It's nothing I would make again... and it's nothing I would even try to mold into something better... Next time I'll just look for a different recipe all together. Sad... because I LOVE Balsamic Vinegar!
I really like this. I only used green and red bellpeppers because thats what I had. I served it over rice and the kids put their chicken in a fajita tortilla. Very Good. You need to love balsamic vinegar to enjoy.
This recipe was very easy to make , myself and a couple of friends really enjoyed it. I expected there to be a little more flavor , the recipe as a whole was a little bland , but the peppers were delicious! I will make this recipe again , but instead I will be marinating the chicken in advance , I think that will give it what it needs.
Love anything with balsamic vinegar. I will cook the veggies less next time.
A little bland but, I added all the Balsamic at once. Next time I will add as directed.
This was pretty good. I might add more spices next time. I used spray for the chicken and I only used I tbsp of oil for the veggies. 1/4 cup is excessive and not necessary.
Very good as is. Also tasty with soy sauce. Thank you for the recipe.
This was an excellent way to jazz up a chicken dinner. It goes together quickly and there is not a whole lot that can go wrong!
DELICIOUS! The 4 stars is only because the cooking time is a bit off. The veggies need minimal precooking since you're going to cook them with the chicken and vinegar for 20 minutes anyway. I ended up cooking the chicken full-through, setting aside, cooking the veggies to tenderness, adding all the rest of the ingredients and chicken to them and cooking about 10 minutes until the chicken was heated through. Next time, I'm going to try grilling the chicken and veggies in order to cut some calories. Overall, a wonderful dish that has given me reason to love vinegar!
I must admit that at first I thought this was too many peppers, but it turns out it is just right! I really enjoyed this simple recipe, both making it and eating it!!
Easy to make and we really liked it. I did marinate the chicken overnight after reading many reviews talking about it being bland. I marinated in sesame oil, balsamic vinegar, and low sodium soy sauce. I also cooked the chicken whole. I will make this again.
This dish was AMAZING! I have been trying to feed my family healthier food lately and he loved this! I served it over whole grain rice.
I made this with frozen chicken breasts so added a few tablespoons of chicken broth to help them thaw/cook faster. Very tasty served over couscous. Will make again.
Fantastic, quick, and easy. I didn't use all the balsamic as I thought it would be to strong. Topped it with red pepper flakes.
I found this a bit bland. I followed the directions and am not sure what I did wrong. It was still good, but my husband didn't like it as much as I did. I rated this in the middle of the scale.
WOW! A wonderful bust of flavor and healthy too. Loved it!! My 2 1/2 year old could not get enough.
This was ok, but not great. Have other chicken/balsamic vinegar recipes I like better.
i switched this recipe up a bit...more of a sweet and spicy texture. I added 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and added a little bit of red pepper flakes. Very tasty
'Didn't know what to do with a cute little basket of mini sweet peppers of different colors from Trader Joe's. This was incredibly easy and both my husband and I loved it. The balsalmic vinegar makes it taste slightly sweet. If you cook the chicken well, it doesn't need the whole 20 minuts at the end if you're in a hurry.
I like this method, flavors were good. Something different from the usual stir fry and used ingredients I had on hand. I may decrease amount of oil next time a little. Served over rice. (I had no dry basil so I used Tarragon and a little fresh basil and it was a fine substitute)
I made this last night and it tastes great! I made enough for my luch for the next four days. I made some white rice that I cooked with diced tomatos, a little bit of olive oil, oregano, salt and peppers. My spouse ate some of it, mostly the chicken, so I took the left overs bellpeppers, onions and rice and added some baked red beats. A nice twist. RECOMMENDED!!!
It was delicious and easy....I will certainly have it again.
If you use a good balsamic vinegar, then you can't go wrong. It was a great dish.
What a great simple recipe. Cut chicken breasts in half and pounded them a bit so they were uniformly thin. Cooked in a cast iron skillet so it came together in no time (had to be careful not to overcook chicken). Used fresh basil (about 1/4 c.) vs dry, and added freshly grated Parmesan Reggiano to finish. Served with brown rice. A great weeknight meal but is nice enough to serve to guests. Bravo.
Seriously great. Only had a green bell pepper on hand, so used that, and tossed in some pearl onions I had in the freezer. So good. Thanks for the recipe!
This was delicious! I only had red peppers, but it worked just fine. Served over garden fettucine... YUM!
This recipe is great! I decided not to add the balsamic vinegar at the end, though. I thought that might overpower the tastes of the chicken and the peppers. I also served this over rice.
I use this exact recipe (almost) for fajitas! It is so delicious. The only thing I do different is I use soy sauce rather than balsamic vinegar....which I am going to try now thank you very much! I warm a flour tortilla with a little cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds and then add this mixture and top with sour cream.....SO DELICIOUS!!! Great with beef too and even with no meat...on those meatless nights I use rice instead.
Good recipe - I changed it a bit by briefly marinating the chicken in a mix of soy sauce, fish sauce and a bit of sesame oil first. yum!
This was not my favorite. I guess I'm just not a big fan of Balsamic.. the flavor was a little overwhelming to me. Chicken was a little bland too. I'm not sure that I will make this again.
This recipe is much better with fresh tarragon than the basil. It has zing.
This dish was excellent!! I never follow quantities so I just eyeballed everything but the basil (which I semi-measured) and it turned out wonderfully! Many people said it needed salt but I did not think that was the case. My peppers turned out tasting very sweet, and everything had a nice full flavor. When we finished eating, we were left wanting more!
This recipe is a great base for many variations. I tossed the mixture with angel hair pasta & goat cheese. Really Delicious!
This was wonderful and so easy! I did not stray from the recipe except for adding a splash of chicken stock at the end for a little extra moisture. Be sure to follow the last step and cook all together for 20 minutes - really makes a difference in taste, softening/ steaming all the great flavors together. I served with a pot of rice and sliced Avocado - yum!
Very simple,the only change I made was to add a little honey to take some of the bite out of the vinegar. My family doesn't like things too tart. We served ours over noodles. There was plenty of sauce.
This was both delicious and easy to make. I am not a very experienced cook, but the directions were simple to follow. The recipe even got the time and # of people served estimates right! I and my parents loved it, particularly the effect that the balsamic vinegar added. I substituted an Herbs de Provence mixture for basil, and it worked quite well.
this was pretty good. i didn't have many peppers(1/2 for 1 chicken breast) but it was good anyway. i gave 4 stars 'cause i do think it needs some salt, or as other said they added soy sauce, but it needs a little salt kick either way.
Great one-pan meal. Used Italian seasoning in lieu of basil, which was great. I would've given it 5 stars if it had some crunch for a textural change. A great basic recipe you can play around with. Thanks for sharing!
Love this completely! Even my two-year-old grandson devoured it. The combination of ingredients makes for a delightful savory delivery for one's pallet. I did add about 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (if not for my grandson joining us for dinner I would have added a tad more), but overall this was a great recipe.
Loved it! my Wife loved it as well & its great for people who are carb. conscious!! The Fresh Bell peppers and onions make a difference and its a colorful dish!
Delicious - eyeballed recipe - may have added a little extra basil.
This is one of my favorites! Love, love, love. I add a bit more balsamic because I like it zingy. Nice recipe.
This was certainly passable, but even with the addition of red pepper flakes and feta cheese, there was something missing! Just not as flavourful as you would think.
I marinated the chicken in vinegar and soy sauce beforehand, didn't add the basil or onion but instead added some grated ginger and chili paste. I cut up the peppers like confetti and the last one I cut in rounds. Even my 3 yr old loved it! A great recipe to start with. The perfect summer sizzle with a little extra stuff for kick!
Very sweet. Not really a taste we enjoy.
This recipe is easy to make, and doesn't require a lot of ingredients. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it, and I never cook!
Yum! We had this for dinner tonight. Very good. Served over rice. Will definitely be making again!
Sorry but this recipe was very bland. I did not get a kick from the balsamic vinegar. Chicken & peppers always are a good combination. I discarded the liquid and used the left-overs in tortillas for lunch..not bad.
delicious. could use more seasoning but overall a great dish that is quick and easy.
I was disappointed in this recipe. I used all fresh ingredients except for the basil and thought it was terribly bland. We had to use soy sauce to give it flavor. I had hoped for stronger flavors. Maybe I was expecting it to be more oriental.
I added fresh mushrooms to this and a little more balsamic than it called for. I served it over rice and YUM! definitely making this again.
Despite what some others have said, this had plenty of flavors for me. I especially loved the way the flavor was brought out of the peppers. Still, I added some allspice to be sure I had enough flavors and it did. Absolutely delicious dinner. Went well with garlic bread and fried asparagus.
Ok, simple and great! Two of the best qualities needed when cooking. I had to add a little salt (just because) and I used Kraft's Balsamic Vinaigrette instead (that's what I had and it added more flavor). I will make this again and again. Even my 9 year old enjoyed it and she hates veggies lol. This is also a great side dish, minus the chicken of course. I love this dish and can't wait for lunch tomorrow...hmmm leftovers!!! =)
Great! I wanted something different to do with chicken breasts and this was great and lowfat. I added much more basil than the recipe called for but I like things with more flavor. My husband loved it!
It was absolutely delicious!!
The recipe was acceptable, but we prefer something with a little more seasoning. I served it with a wild rice/white rice mixture and some added soy sauce.
We really enjoyed this recipe. Nice fresh flavors.
I followed the instructions and it came out over cooked and chicken was dry. Next time I will use a smaller pan. It's too bad, I love balsamic vinegar
We cooked this last night and it was a hit! I added some mushrooms and broccoli to just add to the flavor. The balsamic vinegar was a very very strong flavor so we're going to dilute it a little next time around!
i serve this over white rice...a quick and easy meal
I made this for a mini-dinner party i had and it was such a hit! my friends have all asked for the recipe!
I make this allll the time! I use Ken's Steakhouse Balsamic and Roasted Onion Marinade on the chicken... it is AMAZING! I also have put this over pasta, rice, or even with red potatoes!
Yum. This one goes in the rotation for sure. The only modifications I made were to cut the oil way down and amp up the garlic. It was so easy to make and the taste was wonderful! Looks pretty, too. :-)
Fabulous flavour! Chicken and balsamic are the perfect pairing. I cooked the peppers for less time than stated because I prefer them with a bit of "bite" - not mushy. Served it with a pesto pasta. Wonderful, quick, easy.
Very good and easy to make.
This recipe was easy to make, tasty and pleasing to the eye. I think I will take the reviewers advice and add some pepper flakes to give it a little kick. I served it with brown rice. Very nice.
This was an awesome recipe! I loved it because I didn't have everything on hand that I needed, but I still worked it out! I didn't have garlic or onion so I used powder forms of both. Also, for flavor I used boneless skinless chicken thighs which was amazing! I seasoned the meat with salt and pepper and garlic powder, threw in the peppers, cooked a while then added the balsamic vinegar. Yummm!! I served with bow tie pasta! Will do again!
This is delicious! I marinated the chicken in balsamic vinegarette all day. It has such a nice flavor. My husband and I had just had rice the day before so I served it with couscous instead. Great dish!
Made recipe as written, but for me lacked flavor. Just needed more taste. Am trying to figure out what to do with leftovers...thinking some lime and soy sauce and make fajitas. Won't be making again as the peppers are rather expensive for the result.
Instead of chicken breasts, we used tenderloin! We served over rice and my husband renamed it Slap Chicken!
Very good, but I felt cooking for 20 minutes would be too long, so I browned on both sides and removed the chicken. I pre-cooked the onions and peppers and then threw all together, including fresh basil and warmed through. The chicken was moist and succulent and definitely not undercooked.
I did the recipe the way it was shown but I added some crispy fried pieces of bacon and put it with basmati rice.
Very tasty, will defiantly try it with some spicy peppers added next time. Have it on a bed of powered greens, works out well.
Easy recipe,really enjoyed it. Next time I'll add some more flavoring when browning the chicken.
My first time cooking chicken and I decided to try this recipe. I modified it a little because I wasn't sure what to do with the chicken and wasn't sure how it would turn out. And I was feeling very adventurous. So I marinated the chicken with beer, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice and cumin. Then at the end, I added basil as well as parsley to get a bit of freshness, as well as some paprika to get a kick of heat. The bell peppers did end up a bit over cooked so next time I'd probably add them towards the end. But the balsamic vinegar made it so delicious!!!
Very easy to make and fast! Doesn't need to simmer as long as suggested. Followed the recipe exactly, except I only used two chicken breasts and that worked very well.
Overall the dish was tasty, easy to make, and the ingredients are all common. I left out the green peppers, because I don't really like them, and it still tasted pretty good. Also through in some Tarragon. Though be careful that the chicken doesn't dry out. A nice bonus: while cooking the peppers, the whole apartment smelled awesome.
This was excellent even though I only had one pepper and had to use some mushrooms to fill it out. I also left the chicken breast whole by mistake, but found that it made for a prettier dish. Also, I substituted the onions for Mrs. Dash because I didn't have an onion and it turned out excellent.
lt's okey recipe nothing special. thank you for sharing..l will make this again and l won't put B-vinegar..just soy sauce..:P
Too much dried herbs gave it a clumpy, dry texture. Also had too much vinegar - needs to be sweetened up with honey or sugar and/or reduced in the pan.
My husband and I really enjoyed this chicken. The only change I made was to dump a box/can of crushed tomatoes and basil in right before I added the chicken back to skillet. I served it over whole wheat spaghetti.
This recipe did not have enough flavor. I was hoping after all those lovely peppers and yummy vinegar it would be a hit but it wasn't. It was super bland and we needed to add Italian dressing to finish it off. Would not do this recipe again.
Simple to prepare. Came together very quickly. Served with rice.
Super easy and super delicious! I love the colors and the flavor! Definitely making this again for my family!
decidedly OK. peppers do get mushy. maybe throw them in later. next time, i'll probably heed the advice of others who suggested a bit more seasoning .
I was very excited to try this recipe but was disappointed with the results. I followed the directions exactly but for using fresh basil rather than dried. It was very plain tasting despite its very strong ingredients. If I try it again, I may add some buttom mushrooms and maybe some teriyaki or soy sauce? I am not precisely sure what it needs.
I've tried to make this twice now hoping that it would be better the second time around. We just didn't care too much for it. It wasn't bad, but I won't make it again.
This is a great recipe, especially for the south beach diet. It even tasted great as leftovers the next night!
