honey garlic balsamic chicken recipe

Everyone needs a meal that they can have on the table in 30 minutes that is healthy, easy, and delicious.  This meal is on the table in less than a half an hour and I can bet that you have all of the ingredients that you need in your pantry right now.  Not only is this meal easy to prepare, it has a ton of flavor and everyone in my house loves it.  That is no easy feat.  This Honey Garlic Balsamic Chicken will become your go-to weeknight dinner.  I serve mine with a simple orzo pasta tossed with a little homemade pesto and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.  If I am really ambitious, I would add a salad.  My spinach salad is my all-time favorite and would be perfect with this chicken.

    Do you think this is something that could be made & then frozen? I do a lot of freezer cooking for my family & this recipe sounds tasty! Would it work to freeze the sauce you think?
