How To Make Balsamic Chicken

The total time to prepare this recipe is around 25 minutes so it really is quick and easy. Let’s get started!

The first thing you need to do is make our sweet and savory balsamic sauce. Simply whisk together the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, Erythritol, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.

Next, heat your butter in a skillet and then sauté the chicken thighs skin-side on down each side until golden. This should take about 3-5 minutes per side. Add your garlic to the skillet and stir until slightly brown.

Now, pour over the balsamic sauce and simmer over low to medium heat until reduced to a glaze (around 10 minutes). Garnish with rosemary sprigs and serve hot.
