Serve with steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes.
4   bone-in chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 pounds), trimmed, skin removed
salt & freshly ground pepper  to taste
2 teaspoons  dried thyme leaves, divided
1/4 cup  red currant jelly
2 tablespoons  balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly oil or coat it with nonstick spray.

Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, then rub with 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme. Place bone-side up in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat jelly, vinegar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon thyme over medium-low heat until jelly is melted. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.

Turn chicken meat-side up. Brush liberally with jelly glaze. Continue to roast, brushing twice with remaining glaze, until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes more. Serve.

Try this one!!!
I tried the Balsamic-glazed Chicken recipe tonight and was SO glad I did. This is a great recipe, in that, we all look for new ways to prepare chicken. This recipe delivers. The flavors are superb...sweet and salty...the best of both worlds. One thing I did differently, was that I left the skin on the chicken breasts. The skin was wonderfully crispy and delicious. Would recommend anyone looking for a new way to prepare chicken to try this one. Delicious!!
