Honey Balsamic Chicken

Recipe from Budget Bytes. Cooking with my friend Lisa as a fun study break! Although we burnt the sauce to a blackened crisp in our attempt to "thicken the sauce," we just threw it away and started over. Too bad we can't do the same with bad block exam grades...

Ingredients
chicken breasts/thighs/legs
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3-4 cloves garlic
olive oil
salt & pepper
4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
6 Tbsp honey

Instructions
Marinate the chicken with 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, one clove of garlic (minced), olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken until browned on both sides. Place the cooked chicken on a clean plate.

Turn the heat down on the skillet to medium-low and add olive oil and 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to the skillet. Stir the balsamic vinegar, the honey, and allow the sauce to simmer until thickened. Once the sauce has thickened, season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the chicken back to the skillet and toss to coat in the warm balsamic sauce. Serve immediately.
