Balsamic Chicken Strip with Tomato

This recipe for Balsamic Chicken Strip with tomato is a very good dish for dinner.We love chicken a lot in our household. I’m always on the lookout for new ways and flavours to use with chicken. That’s the great thing about chicken; it holds up to a variety of seasoning, sauces and marinades. This is a quick dish and even though I’ve made this dish before, it has been a while so I thought it would be worth explaining the process. I was cleaning out the pantry and I had a little bit of balsamic vinegar left. I need to get more, but wanted to use it up first. And voila dinner was ready.

At times, for me, balsamic vinegar can have a slight bite to it. I tasted the sauce while I was cooking, and it was a bit too tangy for me. I added a pinch of dark brown sugar to the pan. That added bit of sweetness really balanced the sauce. It’s an optional step depending on your preference.

I served this over regular white rice with a side of chopped spinach. It was a delicious, quick and easy meal. Let me know if you decide to try it!
