Ingredients
Directions

Whisk the vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper in small bowl to blend. Combine the vinaigrette and chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag; seal the bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Remove chicken from the bag and arrange the chicken pieces on a large greased baking dish. Roast until the chicken is just cooked through, about 1 hour. If your chicken browns too quickly, cover it with foil for the remaining cooking time. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Place the baking dish on a burner over medium-low heat. Whisk the chicken broth into the pan drippings, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the baking sheet with a wooden spoon and mixing them into the broth and pan drippings. Drizzle the pan drippings over the chicken. Sprinkle the lemon zest and parsley over the chicken, and serve.

This recipe is amazing, I used split breasts, baked the chicken in the marinade in a glass 8x8, and didn't make the pan drippings. The chicken was very moist and flavorful. Both my husband and I would have this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe exactly but the chicken turned out bland and rather boring. I expected a bit more with its rating. ??? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cook a lot of Giada's recipes... The reason I only gave this 4* is that I thought it lacked in flavor. I let mine marinade for 4 hours. Maybe I will try this one again and marinade overnight to see if the flavor intensify as I love the flavor of balsamic.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and terrific. I used boneless breasts which I cooked for only 20 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy to make and tasted great! We weren't sure if we were going to like the vinaigrette flavor, but it was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was amazing! Definitely a staple from now on.. I did make the broth but it doesn't make or break it. Also cooked covered for the first 30, uncovered the last for a nice crisp skin. Pared it with Tyler Florence's scalloped potatoes.. Yum item not reviewed by moderator and published
