Whether you’re having friends over for dinner or you’re short on time on a weeknight, balsamic glazed chicken is a simple no-fuss meal that you can serve with virtually any side dish.
This recipe comes together in less than 15 minutes and will become your new go-to balsamic chicken recipe.
- Ideally, you’ll pound the chicken breasts so they’re around ?” thick. This will make sure they cook quickly but will keep them super moist and juicy once cooked.
- Depending on the type of broth and coconut aminos you use, you may need to add a little additional salt at the end of cooking.
- Lightly crush your garlic before slicing to release its fragrant compounds.
Let’s get started.
Garlic Balsamic Chicken Recipe
Time in the kitchen: 15 minutes
- 1.5 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
- 3 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen Olive Oil
- 5 clove sliced garlic
- 3.5 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinegar
- 2-3 Tbsp. chicken broth
- 1.5 Tbsp. coconut aminos
- 2 Tbsp. basil
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- salt and pepper
- More fresh basil
Pound the chicken breasts between two pieces of parchment using a meat mallet until they are uniform in thickness. Season both sides of the breasts liberally with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the sliced garlic and stir until the garlic is fragrant. Place the chicken breasts in the pan and saute for 2 minutes on each side.
Add the balsamic vinegar and coconut aminos. Bring the mixture to a boil, then flip over the chicken again and reduce the heat to a simmer.
Add the broth and the tomatoes and give the pan a gentle shake. Continue cooking over medium heat over the stovetop, turning the chicken every minute or so to coat it in the balsamic mixture. Add a small amount of extra broth as needed.
Cook until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the tomatoes are soft. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!
