Directions

Mealthy Tip

Try other fresh herbs in addition to the rosemary. Sprigs of fresh tarragon and oregano add a nice aromatic touch to the meal. Use maple syrup and a bit of molasses instead of the honey for a slight richer flavor. Any variety of olives will work; castelvetrano olives add a great pop of green or a medley of olives is always fun so you get a different flavor with each bite.

Very tasty! The sauce is great. I got the chicken a little overdone with the times suggested, so I'd watch for that next time. And I'll probably omit the lemon wedges next time for simplicity, since the lemon flavor is already in the sauce.

This balsamic chicken is my husbands favorite recipe. I especially love the garlic and rosemary flavors. Overall the meat is always juicy and tender whenever we make it, and tons of flavor.
