Heart Healthy Balsamic Chicken Recipe
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oil and black pepper. Place the chicken and the marinade in a resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag and toss to coat completely. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.
Preheat the oven to 400°. Lightly coat a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Arrange marinated chicken pieces in baking pan. Roast the chicken, basting with pan juices occasionally, for 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter.
Scrape up the brown bits from the baking pan and transfer to a small saucepan. Whisk in the chicken broth and cook over medium-low heat. Drizzle the chicken broth mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley just before serving.
