“This is a take on balsamic chicken with a twist thrown in. The addition of crackers (Savoritz original style, or Ritz, or any similar brand is fine) soaks up the sauce and gives it an added texture and flavor punch. I've tried to give this measurements but to be honest I never measure, I just do what 'feels right'. My husband has suggested we increase the sauce amount to serve over rice so that's an option too if you feel experimental. Serve with cilantro lime rice or coleslaw.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a heated iron skillet (low heat) add your bacon grease (or olive oil).
  2. Add minced garlic, saute for 20 seconds.
  3. Add diced chicken and mix it around to coat it in the garlic and oil.
  4. Add salt and half of the pepper, then let the chicken cook about halfway, stirring attentively. This can take 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add lemon, white wine and Worcestershire sauce.
  6. When chicken is about 2/3rds done, add balsamic vinegar and pepper. Increase heat to medium or medium-low and continue stirring around pan.
  7. After 2-3 minutes, add crushed crackers. Stir to coat all of the chicken pieces thoroughly, and continue to cook for another 30 seconds or a minute until sauce is absorbed by crackers.
  8. Rest it for 1 minute before serving.
