As I was going through my impressive arsenal of recipes that are ready to be blogged about, I quickly realized I have a lot of chicken recipes. And pizza recipes. To look through them you would think I survived on only chicken and pizza, with little variance from them. Which I didn’t but I don’t know why I don’t have more beef or other meat in there as I know I’ve cooked it, maybe I forgot to take pictures or maybe I didn’t deem it blog worthy, I’m not sure. I will though, put forth the effort to cook more beef, pork or venison…something besides chicken!
And with that said, I give you today’s recipe…;)
Balsamic BBQ Glazed Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 c. balsamic vinegar
¾ c. ketchup
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. Dijon mustard
½ t. salt
½ t. black pepper
½ t. garlic powder
Place on stove and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the sauce is reduced by about 1/3.
Season the chicken by lightly sprinkling it with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Heat the grill or grill pan to medium heat and place the meat on the grill.
Use a pastry brush to brush each piece of chicken with some of the balsamic bbq sauce.
The chicken will need to cook until it reaches 160 degrees which is about 7-8 minutes on each side. As the chicken is cooking, brush each side with sauce every few minutes.
Once the chicken is cooked through, allow to rest for a few minutes before serving. Be sure to serve the remaining warm balsamic bbq sauce for dipping.
This balsamic glaze is soooo good. I knew before I even made this recipe that I would like the sauce, so I doubled the recipe. It’s that good. Use it as a marinade for steak or pour it over some pulled pork…the possibilities are endless.
The pasta in my photos was easy and quite tasty too. Boil ¾ lb. of angel hair pasta. Saving 1 c. pasta water. Drain pasta and put back into pan.
Add reserved water and a 10 oz. container of savory garlic Philadelphia Cooking Crème to pasta. Add some salt and black pepper to taste, stir until combined…voila!
