Balsamic Chicken Breasts

“I made these up with ingredients on hand, and have cooked them several times since -- they are a big hit with my husband and neighbor who comes for dinner! I tend to overcook my chicken to play it safe, so at 45 minutes, I uncover and leave in oven while I finish up side dishes like rice pilaf and green beans. Even if cooked too long, chicken remains moist and tender. Use your own expertise to cook chicken until done.”
