What’s for Dinner: Balsamic Chicken and Pears



This is a simple Chicken dish with a tasty sauce that requires no sweetening beyond the flavor of the pears.

Balsamic Chicken and Pears Recipe

1 tbsp plus 1tsp of olive oil

4 small skinless, boneless chicken-breast halves

2 Bosc pears, each unpeeled, cored, and cut into 8 wedges

1 cup chicken broth

In a 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tbs oil on medium until hot. Add chicken and cook, turning once, 10 to 12 minutes or until juices run clear when thickest part of the chicken is cut with a knife. Transfer chicken to plate. In same skillet, in remaining oil, cook pear wedges 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. In cup mix broth, vinegar, and cornstarch; add to skillet with pears. Heat to boiling on medium-high. Boil 1 minute. Return chicken and any juice on plate to skillet; heat through.

My  husband and I both liked this, but more importantly my three-year-old son, after a few minutes of protest, decided he liked too!
