Delicious Balsamic Chicken Salad

Have you ever had balsamic chicken salad?  It is so delicious and makes a great lunch dish.  It is so simple to make and trust me you will love it!  This recipe was made using Tuscanini Balsamic Glaze.  It is a delicious fine quality balsamic glaze and adds amazing flavor to my Balsamic Chicken Salad recipe.  For those who are not familiar with balsamic glaze, it is similar to balsamic vinegar but thicker.  It is perfect for salads, chicken, as a topping for dishes and even can be used as a garnish.

1 lb. boneless chicken cut into strips
1/2 cup of oil
1/2 cup of milk
2 eggs beaten
1 cup flour
