Chicken Bites with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

Here is yet another "freezer" cooking recipe that is delicious & easy!  Husband loved it so it is obviously a "keeper!"

I have adapted it a bit from Mmm...Cafe 's recipe.

Chicken Bites with Balsamic BBQ Sauce
Serves 2

1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
3/4 Cup Ketchup
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
Salt & Pepper to taste
(2) Large Chicken Breasts cut into Bite-Sized Pieces

In a small bowl stir together balsamic vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic cloves, worcestershire, dijon mustard, salt & pepper until smooth.

Place Chicken Pieces into a Ziploc or FoodSaver Bag.   Pour sauce over Chicken and seal.  Kneed bag so that chicken gets evenly coated with the sauce.

Chicken & Sauce Before Baking
At this point, you can pop your meal in the freezer for later enjoyment or go ahead and cook it!  (If you freeze your meal, make sure you write on the bag the cooking instructions & what it is so you don't forget!)

Dinner is Served!
Line a baking pan with foil and fill with chicken & sauce.  Bake at 375 for 40 minutes or until Chicken is cooked through.    If you froze your meal: remove from freezer and thaw in fridge the night before you plan on making it.

Serve over brown or white rice.

*This recipe is EASY to double or triple... so go ahead and make a couple batches and freeze some meals for later!

*ALSO NOTE that the above ingredient list is only for (2) servings-- so if you are feeding more than (2) people increase the ingredients accordingly =)



  1. Hi Melissa, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  2. My hubby and I tried this tonight and loved it! I am also going to make this for my freezer meal exchange group.

  3. Will this be okay without the dijon mustard? Or with a different kind of mustard?

  4. Could this be a crockpot recipe?
