The balsamic vinegar in this Balsamic Chicken – and you can use the regular old affordable supermarket variety—provides a sweet and sour base and great depth of flavor to this very quick sauce. (📷 : @jssica) 🍽 You'll need: -2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil -4 boneless chicken breast halves with the skin (about 1 1/2 pounds) -Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper -1 medium onion -1 garlic clove -4 medium plum tomatoes, (about 1 pound) -1/4 cup balsamic vinegar -1 cup chicken broth -2 tablespoons unsalted butter 🐔 To prepare: 1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add the chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper, skin side down and cook for 6 minutes or until the skin is nicely browned. Turn the chicken over and cook for 12 to 14 minutes on the second side or until the chicken is just cooked through. Transfer with tongs or a slotted spoon to a plate and cover loosely with foil. 2. While the chicken is cooking, finely chop the onion (about 1 cup), medium chop the tomatoes (about 2 cups) and mince the garlic (about 1 teaspoon). After you have transferred the chicken to a plate, turn the heat down to medium and add the onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook 3 minutes or until softened slightly. 3. Add the vinegar and broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Add any juices from the chicken plate to the pan and the butter and heat just until the butter is melted. Transfer the chicken, skin side up, to each of 4 plates and top each serving with some of the sauce.
