Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

16 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 salt and pepper, to taste
3/4 pound leeks, sliced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoons olive oil
6 cloves garlic
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon crumbled bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon butter

Recipe Directions for Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Rinse the leeks and pat dry. Season the flour with salt and pepper and dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat and saute the chicken until it is nicely browned on one side (about 3 minutes).

  2. Add the garlic. Turn the chicken breasts and scatter the leeks over them. Continue frying, shaking the skillet and stirring the leeks. Cook for about 3 minutes, then add the vinegar, broth, bay leaf and thyme. Cover tightly and simmer over medium low heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

  3. Transfer the chicken to a warm serving platter and cover with foil. Set aside. Continue simmering the sauce, uncovered, over medium high heat for about 7 minutes. Swirl in the butter or margarine and discard the bay leaf. Pour this leek and garlic sauce mixture over the chicken and serve.
