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).
