DSC 1006 1024x682 Balsamic Chicken Recipe using SPLENDA® Sweetener! #SweetSwapsIf all goes as planned, I love to make at least 4-5 home cooked meals a week in my household, along with a few desserts. In my household though, I am very particular what we eat. I like to make smart choices for healthy living. One way, I am doing this is by substituting my usual sugar that is called for in recipes for SPLENDA® . I find when I do this, not only do my dishes taste just as the same when I use loads of unhealthy sugar, but I am cutting down the calories and increasing the nutritional value in my recipes.DSC 1008 1024x682 Balsamic Chicken Recipe using SPLENDA® Sweetener! #SweetSwaps

While I have made numerous recipes over the years using Splenda, I thought I share my favorite one titled Balsamic Chicken. My mother in law actually gave me this recipe for my shower many years ago and I continue to make it every single week. My whole family is a huge fan of this recipe and by simply making the switch from sugar to SPLENDA® Granulated Sugar, I am able to make a meal to accompany our lifestyle of healthy living. I made this recipe healthier by simply using 3/4 cup of SPLENDA® Granulated Sugar, instead of 1 1/4 cup of sugar that the recipe called for. I can use much less of the SPLENDA® than the unhealthy sugar which is a win-win for me!

    I make a chicken very similar and it is absolutely delicious. I will try the Splenda next time instead of the sugar to make it healthier.

    That looks amazing, I have never made Balsamic Chicken, I was always afraid I would not like it. That looks amazing though so I think I will give your recipe which looks pretty easy a try. I love the no calorie sweetener, that is a great idea to keep it a healthier dish.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe that I can make my Dad who is diabetic. This looks so delicious! I have everything except the garlic to make this recipe. We love Balsamic vinegar in our food. Thanks for sharing!
