The Perfect Fall Recipe

In other words – this is the best way to welcome fall into your life this year! Now that schools started even though it’s still 98 degrees out it’s seems like fall has already come.

I absolutely love fall. And for some reason I tend to reserve sweet potato and Brussels sprouts recipes for this time of year, even though I can get fresh year round.

That Balsamic Glaze is Key

I’m alllll about that balsamic glaze (I also like to call it “black magic sauce”). Actually one of my favorite gelatos I buy locally is a ricotta balsamic gelato and it is to. die. for. Who knew?? Oh and balsamic strawberries, yes! Put em on a cheesecake.

Maybe for dessert right after this meal. Because you can never have too much balsamic glaze :).

Recipe Notes

  • *Try to cut all of the chicken pieces close to the same size so they'll finish cooking through at the same time.

  • **For homemade balsamic glaze: In a small saucepan whisk together 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp honey. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until reduced to about 3 Tbsp, about 10 - 13 minutes. Let cool (it will thicken more as it cools).
