"My aunt made this for Christmas Eve one year -- it's fantastic! I tweaked her recipe just a bit to my taste, and cooked this meal for a date night. We have been together ever since! Adjust the garlic and vinegar to your liking. I happen to believe that garlic should be included in every meal,so I tend to add more depending on my mood. Don't be put off by the smell of the vinegar. As it cooks down, it becomes sweet and not as strong. Your nose may tell you otherwise! I serve a Pinot Grigio and rice pilaf with this dish to round out the meal."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and drizzle the olive oil into the hot skillet. Cook and stir 4 garlic cloves just until fragrant, about 1 minute, smashing them into the oil with a spoon as you stir. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and brown them in the hot oil until the surface is golden and the meat is no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken breasts to a platter and keep warm.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the skillet over medium heat, and scrape up any browned bits of flavor from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in 2 more cloves of garlic, the green, red, and yellow bell peppers, red onion, and asparagus, and cook and stir until the vegetables are brightly colored and softened, about 10 minutes. Toss the spinach leaves with the hot vegetables to just wilt the spinach. Divide the cooked vegetables between 4 serving plates, and top each plate with a chicken breast.
  3. Stir the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar into the skillet over medium-low heat, stirring until the vinegar comes to a full boil and the sugar has dissolved. Cook the mixture until reduced and thickened, 3 to 5 minutes; spoon the balsamic sauce over each chicken breast to serve.

Everyone enjoyed it (all adults). The only changes I made were: using boneless thighs (3 per person; thighs are tastier & moister), adding a couple of teaspoons of balsamic vinegar to the chicke...

Excellent!!!! I was skeptical at first about the amount of balsamic vinegar called for this dish. Then, after I read a few reviewers and some people said that they doubled the sauce, I decided t...

This was so tasty! I think I over-caramelized the balsamic, because it's suuper sticky, but I'll do it less next time.

LOVED it. Thank you! Perfect for the Winter-Blahs.

I made this recipe when I wanted to try cooking asparagus for the first time. The dish is ABSOLUTELY delicious and very easy to make. I'm living in Japan and familiar ingredients can be hard to ...

What a great healthy meal. The balsamic gives this dish such a nice flavor. I cut the chicken and vegis into bite sized pieces and cooked in a wok. Served with rice.

This was okay. Needs a lot more garlic and pepper to suit our tastes. Good base recipe, will tweek it next time. Nice healthy meal.

Wow this truly is an AMAZING dish! I absolutely loved it. Don't skimp on the garlic part; I believe that's what makes this recipe. Make it exactly as described and it will be great. I steamed th...
