Balsamic-Herb Poached Chicken

Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes | Serves 4


  • 3 cups ShopRite Lower Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup ShopRite Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 4 (5-oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts



  1. In a medium saucepan combine broth, vinegar, carrots, celery, onion and rosemary. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add chicken; simmer 10 to 15 minutes or just until chicken is heated through (165°F). Drain chicken, reserving half the poaching liquid. Discard vegetables and rosemary. Transfer chicken to a large plate; cover to keep warm.
  2. For the glaze, return reserved poaching liquid to boiling. Simmer 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Reduce heat to medium-low; return chicken to saucepan, turning to coat with glaze. Cook 1 minute or just until chicken is heated through. Transfer chicken to individual plates. Cut into slices, drizzle with remaining glaze, and serve.
