Grilled Chicken with Bacon Balsamic Glaze

Recipe printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from Robin Miller, Food Network


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
garlic salt
olive oil
4 slices of bacon, diced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup beef stock or broth
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Preheat grill to 400 degrees F.  Rub both sides of the chicken with olive oil, then season with garlic salt and pepper.  Place directly over the fire and grill for 5-8 minutes per side or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.

Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until browned and crisp.  (I drained the majority of the grease that was in the pan, but Robin does not tell you to do so in her recipe)  Add the balsamic and bring to a simmer for five minutes, or until the liquid reduces.  In a small bowl add the broth and cornstarch, whisking until the cornstarch is completely dissolved, and add to skillet.  Simmer 2 minutes bringing to a bowl, until sauce thickens.  Remove from heat and spoon sauce over chicken.  Enjoy!
