This recipe serves four people giving each person one balsamic chicken breast. If you are cooking for a crowd, you can double this recipe. Also, if you are just cooking for two people, you can cut this recipe in half.
We served our chicken with a fresh spinach salad with tomatoes and it was a perfect healthy meal. I have also served it with mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, glazed carrots and so much more. I will link some of my favorite side dishes to pair with this recipe for you below.
