Lemon Balsamic Chicken

I love Italy because it gives us so many amazing things, like pizza, parmesan cheese, Nutella and balsamic vinegar!

this stuff is truly the nectar of the gods, and the older it is the better it tastes.

So tonight I bring you a quick under 30 minutes quick.

just saute a couple chicken breasts with olive oil, garlic and shallots

add some balsamic vinegar, water, tomatoes and lemon juice....letting it simmer for a bit

and that's all there is to it...server over some salad greens with some of the lemon balsamic sauce.

  • 2 or 3 tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
