Balsamic Brown Sugar Sauce over Turkey

Balsamic Brown Sugar Sauce over Turkey recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I roasted a turkey last week and wanted to serve the leftovers a little differently from the original meal. The turkey was perfectly matched with the tang of the balsamic and the slight sweetness from just a bit of brown sugar. I can easily imagine this would be just as delicious over leftover chicken or even ham.

I try not to apologize for my pictures. However, I can't deny that this one is particularly unattractive. Because I want to save this recipe to make again; it is going into my archives. Next time I carve a turkey (aka rip apart a turkey, because I don't feel like carving it), I bet I'll remember just how lovely the chunks of meat were here!

Balsamic Brown Sugar Sauce
(printable recipe)

1/2 cup turkey or chicken broth
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar

In a small saucepan, combine all three ingredients. Bring to a boil and them simmer until reduced by about half. Drizzle warm sauce over turkey slices. Enjoy!
