Place the chicken back in the oven and bake a total of 10-15 minutes every 5 minutes, brush lemon glaze over the top of the chicken pieces.The total cooking time should be 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts.If the chicken isn't browned enough, place it under the broiler for 1-2 minutes.

      DIRECTIONS FOR THE LEMON BALSAMIC GLAZE:*Note* If you don't have Lemon Balsamic Vinegar, use the alternate glaze ingredients found above. Spray a small saucepan with cooking spray. Pour the honey into the pan, and bring it to a boil. Boil at med-low heat for 5 minutes or until the honey turns a darker golden brown. Turn down the heat and slowly add lemon balsamic vinegar, lemon zest, salt & pepper. Whisk well and bring back to a boil. Boil over low heat until the honey-vinegar mixture has reduced 10-15 minutes. Whisk often. The glaze will thicken so once it has reduced, take it off the heat and reheat right before drizzling over the chicken.
