This balsamic chicken is a delicious, bright and sweet combination of mint, grapes, balsamic vinegar and chicken. Savory and sweet. Really enjoyable chicken dish. One warning, however -- it's quite challenging to clean up in a non-stick pan if you let the glaze carmelize too long!
lauren_hewittlong ,Chicken was lovely. Great flavours and very juicy. We had red cabbage and mint apple slaw in fridge already so added some fennel and we cooked with potato wedges. Very nice indeed!
leogirl3 ,Refreshing summer dish!! Whole family loved the new flavors and we got to use the mint from our garden! I only had one fennel bulb so I added celery and a green onion.
cjmonte ,Like many, I was intrigued by the ingredients. I thought that I would like this, but I was not so sure about my daughter and wife. Everyone loved the chicken and the slaw! The only addition I made was to add the marinade to my skillet after browning both sides of the chicken. I covered the skillet and steam/cooked the chicken the rest of the way. It came out juicy and added a little more flavor (IMHO). Great recipe.
chefthom ,I was unsure about this recipe at first. I made it because my wife requested it and it turned out very good. The different flavors go very well together. Thanks for a great idea!
stoleek ,I've made this several times now and portion it out for my lunches. It tastes great freshly made and it also makes for a yummy gluten free meal later; I keep it in three containers and mix at work - chicken (to reheat), slaw mixture, then spinach (so it doesn't get limp) My husband loves it for lunch too.
lynn1143 ,This recipe was a blend of healthy and exotic. The spinach/fennel/mint slaw was amazing with balsamic chicken. Wouldn't change anything...just perfect. Lynn
libbipeach ,Loved this, altho too strange for my hubby. I loved the flavors especially of the chicken .. I would definitely make it again !
jena82388 ,This dish is amazing! I've made it multiple times and have yet to hear any complaints or suggestions. I've also made it with steak rather than chicken, and most family members agree it tops it! Definitely marinate it for 24 hours.. It's worth it! THANK YOU for posting!!!
ashleestein ,Awesome recipe! I used cucumber instead of fennel, and then drizzled the finished salad with a balsamic reduction as well as the dressing from the recipe. Delish!
ldgalindo ,I made this for a party and everyone loved it! It is the surprising combination of ingredients, I'm sure!
sharnelle ,This was my husbands favorite recipe so far. Said it had a teriyaki taste to it
cassiecarter ,Absolutely amazing! My friends request me to make it! I just added black peppercorn feta which was amazing!
butchyboy ,This was PHENOMENAL. Who would have thought that grapes, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, spinach and mint would create the basis for such a wonderful recipe? (I didn't.) But I tried it and my wife and I both loved it. A keeper. The fennel was so supprising. If you haven't had it your in for a treat.
littlemickey ,Wow! The slaw was FABULOUS! I went by the recipe and even with two bulbs of fennel the slaw was fantastic. I might add just a bit more mint next time. I thought I ruined the chicken, and I can attest to the hard time cleaning the stainless steel pan afterwords. But to my relief, my wife who always tries my feeble attempts at cooking liked it, went back for seconds in fact. I'll probably butterfly the chicken breasts next time as they took a bit more time to cook through than stated. My wife wants to make the slaw for her upcoming Bunko night with the girls! Will definitely make this again!!
ckpaint ,This was a FANTASTIC recipe, my husband and I both loved the different flavors, I would never have thought to use these ingredients together! Very easy to make - I assembled everything when I started marinating the chicken - and put it all in ziplocs until time to cook - what could be easier? I highly recommend this recipe to all.
