Balsamic vinegar and crumbled feta cheese give this baked chicken dish lots of flavor with very little hands-on time.

Ingredients

(Serves 6)
  • 6 chicken breasts, 4 ounces each
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 6 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Directions

Heat the oven to 375 F. Lightly coat a baking sheet or baking dish with cooking spray or olive oil.

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken breasts, vinegar, brown sugar, oil, paprika, thyme, salt and mustard. Using tongs, coat the chicken. Marinate the chicken breasts for at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator.

Place the marinaded chicken breasts on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F. Sprinkle each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon cheese and serve.
