    I made this tonight and it was delicious! I substituted a regular onion for shallots, and it seemed to work just fine. Will definitely be adding this to the regular recipe rotation!

  2. This was great – the chicken turned out really moist. Served with roasted broccoli and squash and some blue cheese polenta.

  3. Just wanted to let you know, I made this for a Graduation party today for 50+ people and it was a HIT! So many compliments! Thanks for making me look good and giving me an awesome go-to chicken recipe!

  4. This looks wonderful. Is there a brand of balsamic vinegar that you would recommend? What about olive oil? I’m new to cooking with these ingredients and have heard to use a good quality of each but have no idea what brands. Thanks!

      For olive oil, I use the Costco brand (Kirkland) Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. And for balsamic vinegar, I use Napa Valley Naturals Organic Balsamic Vinegar. I try to use as much organic as possible…it’s a much cleaner taste, and better for you too.
