Balsamic glazed chicken with pine nuts and scallions

Well, grilling season is here! We recently grilled great turkey burgers and tonight, chicken. Chicken can get boring very quickly! So when I see interesting ideas like this one, I’m always eager to try them right away. This recipe uses ingredients already on hand, so it makes this dinner even easier. We paired with grilled asparagus and potatoes for h and it was a perfect meal!



2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 (4 ounce) chicken cutlets
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 to 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley

Whisk together balsamic vinegar, garlic and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Drizzle evenly over chicken cutlets in a large shallow dish. Let stand 15 minutes.
Combine green onions, pine nuts and parsley in a small bowl; set aside.
Cook chicken, discarding marinade, over medium high heat on a grill or sauté pan 4 minutes on each side until desired degree of doneness. Top with pine nut mixture.

Note: This can also be made on a grill.—we made ours on the grill. It was great!
