balsamic boneless chicken thighs

Last night for dinner I made Balsamic Chicken Thighs.  I found the recipe on a website called Budget Bytes, a website dedicated to cooking good food on a budget.  I found out about the site while browsing another blog.  There's lots of good recipes and they're relatively simple.  And each recipe lists the price for the measurement of each ingredient.

It was very easy to make this.  The recipe calls for boneless thighs, and that's what I used, but you could easily use regular thighs or even boneless breasts.  I mixed up the marinade, trimmed the fat from the thighs, put them in the pan I would cook them in. and popped the dish into the fridge.  Next day, I took them out of the fridge and baked them for 45 minutes.

They tasted great and were very tender.  I expected an overwhelming balsamic flavor, but I found I tasted the soy sauce more. 

I served the thighs with corn and rice.

Here's the recipe if you want to check it out:  Balsamic Chicken Thighs


  1. I will probably give this a go with chicken breasts. I regularly make a sticky chicken with BBQ sauce, soy and honey. :) I like the sound of the balsamic and I think I will keep that ingredient from The Other Half as he will automatically be all no way that won't be great.. :)

    1. My husband is the same way. I didn't mention the balsamic until it was time to eat. Your recipe sounds yummy! How do you make it?
