What is Balsamic Vinegar?
Balsamic vinegar is occasionally shortened to balsamic, is a concentrated, very dark, and intensely flavoured vinegar originating in Italy, made wholly or partially from grapes. Grape must be freshly crushed grape juice with all the seeds, skins, and stems.
Traditional balsamic vinegar is produced from the juice of just-harvested white grapes (typically, Trebbiano grapes) boiled down to reach a minimum sugar concentration of 30% (brix) or more, which is then fermented with a slow aging process which further concentrates the flavours.
What should be the oven temperature?
My perfect oven temperature is between 220°C or 430°F which is perfect for the chicken breasts, don’t bake for too long, usually, 15-20 minutes is perfect depending on the size of your chicken breasts. But make sure to use a meat thermometer the measure whether the chicken is heated through to 160-170°F.

What to Serve with Balsamic Chicken
I personally love this balsamic chicken one pan to serve over warm white rice and then spoon sauce all over the chicken. Or you can serve with a plate of salad (made with Parsnips, Turnips, potatoes, Carrots, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts) or simply go with mashed potatoes (drizzle with little black pepper).
