Note 1: You can also use balsamic vinegar, the balsamic sauce will a bit more runny. Use balsamic vinegar if you are participating in Sugar-Free January.
Note 2: Omit if participating in Sugar-Free January.
Note 3: This step is not mandatory, but it will result in juicier chicken and a better taste because the meat was able to brown before, activating the maillard reaction.
Note 4: Cooking time depends on the size/thickness of your chicken. Use a thermometer if you can. The thickest part should be coming to 165°F to be done. The chicken broth will help keeping the chicken juicy and also make a great sauce later on. You can thicken it by adding a slurry later if you like. But just dipping fresh bread in it is amazing.
Note 5: If you want the cheese to become bubbly and slightly browned, but the chicken not to overcook, place the pan under your broiler and broil for 1- 3 minutes watching it closely.
