Tammy's Review: 

This is an easy "fancy" chicken dish, with the sliced onions and the balsamic vinegar and thyme. The flavor is delicious! We like to eat it with fried or seasoned rice and a cooked vegetable and/or salad on the side. My rating: 9/10


This was very quick and easy to make, enjoyed by all, and full of flavor. I will be making this again soon! :)


Please see the recipe above for my complete review!


I made the Balsamic Thyme Chicken tonight for dinner, and my husband liked it a lot! I didn't tell him what the recipe was called, until afterward, and he was surprised to find out that it included balsamic vinegar--his favourite! I guess the sugar took away the tartness, yet it wasn't too sweet. Thanks, Tammy, for helping me to get out of the dinner-time menu rut :-)
