I recently came into possession of a new flavor enhancement for cooking. Villa Grimelli Balsamic Glaze White, which is balsamic reduction, that can be used right from the bottle or in my case, mixed with other ingredients.
I had to work until 6 p.m. the other evening and had some boneless chicken breasts ready for grilling. Fortunately, I now had this balsamic glaze to use, but was a bit hesitant about using it alone. I decided to add some Dijon mustard and fresh thyme to the balsamic glaze. All the measurements were eyeballed, but were spot on. I cooked the chicken on one side and when I turned the breasts over, brushed it with a bit of the mixture. The chicken tasted delicious, you got a bit of sweetness and tang from the balsamic glaze and mustard, but had the aroma of the thyme which helped bring all the flavors together. Balsamic glazes are a great way to change the ordinary to extraordinary
