Balsamic Chicken On Minted Spinach, Fennel and Grape Slaw

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!

My whole family loved this recipe and asked for it again. That is a wonder in and of itself. I have 6 children ages 3-18.

Great recipe even without the fennels (store didn't have any)!!!

I found this to be a nice refreshing summer meal owever it was a little bland. I used only one fennel bulb and had only about 1/8 cup of mint left for the slaw. I also grilled the chicken, first I seared both sides and then finished the grilling using the indirect grilling method. I wanted something more so a I crumbled some feta cheese which went very well with it. The next time I will make extra marinade and reduce some of it to use as a glaze to put on top of the finished chicken.

This is a great weeknight recipe. Easy to prepare and great tasing. I added a ripe pear to the salad and found it a perfect addition. Next time I make this recipe I would cut the fennel way back. The fennen was far to strong a flavor with the other delicate ones. Also I found the cooking time on the chicken it be understated.

Delicious and Diabetic Friendly as well. What's not to like about it. This is a definite keeper

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. Served on its own with a crisp Savignon Blanc. (Note, they were out of fennel at my local market, so I skipped that part of the recipe but left all else unchanged.)

Enjoyed this again, and I cannot say enough good things about this recipe. If you've looked at the list of ingredients and say you probably won't like it, give it a try and you might be surprised. The flavors combine in a sweet/minty/exquisite way that's hard to describe. HOWEVER, do be careful about your choice of the pan. Boy is that sugar that the balsamic vinegar leaves behind difficult to clean up off a stainless-bottomed pan! The caramelization is what gives it the flavor, so don't be afraid to let it go a little, but enlist someone with elbow grease in the cleanup ahead of time.

Had this again last night and really enjoyed it. Make sure you use red grapes; green grapes just won't cut it. The grocery store had fennel this time and it added a nice extra touch.
