White Balsamic Glazed Chicken Breasts


If you’re a follower of my blog you know I had food poisoning over the holidays.  Unfortunately it’s stayed with me and my stomach just isn’t back to normal, hence, the reason for my lack of posts.  I just haven’t been up to cooking much.  Toast, soups and bland foods have been what appeal to me most, nothing thrilling that I felt was blog worthy.

However, I did decide to make White Balsamic Chicken Breasts, a Canyon Ranch dish that boasts great flavor. I knew this would work well with my unsettled stomach pairing it with Soft Corn Polenta and steamed asparagus.  Perfect for company and an upset tummy!

To top it off my husband and I were suppose to go out of town this past weekend where it would be sunny and warm. He came down with the flu, so we cancelled the trip, and both spent the weekend in trying to recover.  We rarely get sick so I’m hopeful the rest of 2013 will be better.

If you’re looking for a nice simple dish that’s sure to please your family and guests I recommend Balsamic Glazed Chicken Breasts. Here’s the recipe……
