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.
