Balsamic Chicken Bake

Mac and I try to head back to our home towns at least once every couple of months. This weekend we went home and spent the weekend with my family, and as always I got in the kitchen with my mum and cooked up a fiest. Mum loves cooking and puts so much pride into the food she cooks and the presentation. It’s definitely where my love for cooking has come from. 

This Balsamic Chicken Bake is one dish we had on the menu. It was simple to make, went a long way, and of course nice and healthy. The perfect meal when entertaining or to leave you with left overs for lunches.
