  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts,rinsed and sliced in half
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar or brown sugar substitute
  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano


  • In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, chicken broth, rosemary, basil, and oregano.
  • Place chicken breasts in a large sealable bag. Pour the mixture into the bag and shake well.
  • Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 30-60 minutes or even overnight.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2–3 minutes, until tender. Add chicken and brown about 5 minutes per side.
  • Pour the remaining balsamic mixture over the chicken. Turn heat to high and let the liquid come to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside.
