Balsamic BBQ Chicken

   The weather is finally getting nicer.  My favorite part of warm weather, besides wearing sandals, is being able to grill out.  Nothing tastes as good as food cooked on the grill.  One of my favorites is BBQ chicken on the grill and this balsamic version is awesome!  The sauce gets thick and is both sweet and sour.  It’s a wonderful glaze for a grilled piece of chicken.

Balsamic BBQ Chicken (adapted from Giada’s Kitchen)
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
2/3 c. ketchup
2 T. brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 T. Worchester sauce
1 T. Dijon mustard
1/2 t. onion powder
1 t. black pepper
1 t. cornstarch
1 lb. chicken breasts

1.  Grill the chicken on an outdoor grill.  When the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees remove from heat and cover in foil to keep warm.

2.  Meanwhile, combine all ingredients except cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally.  Whisk in the cornstarch and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.  Serve over top of grilled chicken.
