I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Balsamic Molasses Chicken

Like sweet and sour chicken but with a deep, darker glaze from using balsamic and molasses rather than white vinegar and sugar. 

4 chicken legs, split
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup molasses
3 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
1 cup chicken broth

After cutting the chicken legs in half pat them dry with a paper towel. Salt and pepper them then brown in vegetable oil on medium heat in an oven safe skillet. Sear all sides then add the garlic for 1 minute before adding the molasses and balsamic. Cook until thin syrup consistency, 4-5 minutes.

Next pour the broth into the pan along with the ginger and boil for 3 minutes.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 25 minutes. Turn the pieces over and bake another 20 minutes. Finish by boiling on the stove top 2-3 minutes then serve.
