This Balsamic Glazed Caprese Chicken is one of my current favourite ways to cook chicken, because it’s extremely flavourful and it’s ready in 40 minutes. The chicken is very tender and juicy since it’s cooked/baked in a balsamic glaze. Mm… This is really yummy!

The balsamic glaze is the star of this sweet and savoury dish and is really very simple to make. You only need of course balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. But you start this dish by searing the chicken in the skillet. This step is very important because it makes the chicken even more flavourful. Then, it’s time to make your quick balsamic glaze and when it’s done you return the chicken to the pan, coat it with the delicious balsamic glaze. After that you just have to place the skillet in the oven for 25-30 minutes. The chicken will be ready when it reaches the internal temperature of 165F.
