Need a recipe for balsamic chicken?

This local deli used to make it. It is not a low-cal or spa type balsamic recipe. I have tons of those. The chicken was usually legs and thighs and somewhat breaded and stewed with mushrooms and onions in a kind of thick tan gravy. As a self-styled foodie, I can tell the thickener was not the usual corn starch or flour, but probably breadcrumbs, and the balsamic was more of a flavoring, but not as a reduction or the base for the sauce. Can anyone help?
