Vanilla Balsamic Chicken

Our Vanilla Balsamic Chicken uses rich Vanilla Balsamic Vinegar and a touch of orange juice to create the traditional sweet & sour flavor combination that is so wonderful on chicken.  

We recommend serving this with rice, quinoa, or noodles (try our Devil's Angel Hair Pasta from Rossi Pasta!). Add a vegetable and you have a delicious, balanced meal!

Recipe adapted from Cooking Light.



  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Combine the vinegar, chicken broth, shallot, orange zest and juice, and garlic in a saucepan and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until mixture is reduced to ½ cup (about 20 minutes). Add ½ teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  3. While the sauce is reducing, combine ½ teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Season chicken on all sides, and set aside in a single layer in a roasting pan that has been coated with the olive oil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Brush half of the reduced broth mixture over chicken. Bake 5 minutes more, then brush on the remaining broth mixture.
  6. Bake approximately 15 more minutes, or until internal temperature reaches at least 165°.  
  7. Serve over noodles, rice, or quinoa.
