Chicken in Balsamic Dijon Sauce

We made this when Don's cousin Lee and wife Cindy were here. The chicken turned out very moist and the sauce was yummy.

1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
4-6 pieces of chicken
salt and pepper

For the BBQ sauce

Combine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper in a small saucepan and stir until all the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by 1/3, about 15 to 20 minutes.
For the chicken
Place a grill pan over medium heat or preheat your grill. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly coat with some of the BBQ sauce using a pastry brush. Place the chicken on the grill. Place the remaining BBQ sauce, still in the small saucepan, over low heat or on the edge of the grill and allow to gently simmer while the meat cooks.

Cook the chicken about 8 minutes per side. Continually brush the meat with barbecue sauce every few minutes. Remove the meat from the grill and let rest for at least 5 minutes. Serve with the heated barbecue sauce alongside.
