  3. I’m a big fan of balsamic chicken. I started making it back in college as a switch up from my traditional chicken breast flavors.

    One of my favorite additions is adding a bit of raw honey to the recipe for a little sweetness with the tanginess from the balsamic vinegar. Such a great balance!
