Baked Balsamic Chicken Recipe Ingredients

Serves 2 - 4

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 rashers back bacon or proscuitto
  • 2 tsp Italian mixed herbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsps White wine
  • 2 punnets cherry tomatoes
  • ground black pepper

Recipe Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 200 C (350 F).

Wrap the bacon around each chicken breast and put them in an oven-proof dish. Sprinkle with herbs and place the tomatoes over the top.

Mix the garlic into the olive oil and then pour the olive oil, white wine and balsamic vinegar over the chicken breasts and bake in a hot oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. The tomato skins should just be starting to blacken. You should baste the chicken about 20 minutes into the cooking time and then return to the oven to bake for the remaining time.

Serve the baked chicken breasts and the delicious pan juices with pasta, salad and ciabatta bread.
