Balsamic Roasted Chicken

This Balsamic Roasted Chicken is a great weeknight meal. It’s extremely simple and takes very little time to whip up. The meat soaks up the flavor of the marinade pretty quickly, so you don’t have to let it sit for very long. The flavor kind of reminds me of a tangy teriyaki sauce. I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine did!

 

Quick tip: Try using chicken breasts sometime!
