Balsamic Chicken

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.

Though in this recipe, I am not cooking the baked Balsamic Chicken version, it the simple one-pan version (mentioned below). But let me first share how to make the baked Balsamic Chicken. (Follow thee steps below)

  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  • Line a baking dish with foil and parchment paper.
  • Take a bowl and mix the sauce together.
  • Place chicken pieces, skin side down in baking dish.
  • Pour the sauce all over the chicken pieces and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven turn chicken over, and baste with the sauce.
  • Again, bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked through.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes, and serve over rice, potatoes, then spoon sauce all over the plate.

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).
