Tortellini & Balsamic Chicken


This dish is so fresh and perfect for those nights that you are craving gourmet Italian. The secret to this recipe is getting the right balsamic glaze. It’s hard to find a true balsamic glaze, which in not watery like dressing. My favorite is from Trader Joes, the Trader Giotti’s Balsamic Glaze.  Recipe is below… enjoy!
