Balsamic vinegar is one of my favorite ingredients drizzled into a salad dressing, just a touch added at the end of making a pasta sauce to give it some bright acidity or mixed with something sweet in a pan glaze.

I've tried this using sugar as the sweetener in this recipe, but the added sticky texture and flavor of the honey really sets it apart. If that wasn't enough, there are only five foods in the ingredient list, most which are probably in your fridge or pantry.

Every time I make this I double it to serve for dinner one night and then place the remainder on top of salad for lunch the next day or two. The chicken stays incredibly moist while the balsamic, honey and soy mix together creating a sweet, salty, tangy sauce creating a special somethin' somethin' at dinner time. Don't forget to serve this Sweet Balsamic Glazed Chicken with a side of broccoli or a slice of bread to sop up any leftover tasty glaze!

    Would it be possible to start with frozen chicken. IE. not defrost it before you pop it in the oven?

      I think that would work, but it will take much longer to cook!

    I tried this tonight, it’s definitely yummy but my sauce came out really runny, it didn’t thicken at all and I followed the recipe exactly as outlined, do you know why mine didn’t thicken?

    Thanks!

    Can you sub Bragg’s Amino for the soy sauce? We try not to eat soy in our home.

      Yes! You can always use those interchangeably at a 1:1 ratio!

    I make this all the time for my family too! If I have them on hand, I also add some cilantro, lime juice/zest, and sliced scallions for variety.

    Has anyone tried replacing the honey with agave? Would it be the same amount of agave as the honey?

      You can usually interchange honey and agave at a 1:1 ratio! I’ll be interested to see how it turns out with the agave!

    I made this last night, using low-sodium soy sauce. It was tasty, quick, and easy. I can see why it’s a regular in your house. I can see myself making it often, too!

    what are you serving as the side salad? It looks delicious in the picture!

    Would you advise doubling the sauce when marinating so the chicken would marinate in half the sauce then cook in the other half?
