Chicken with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

    4 pieces chicken (breast or leg-and-thigh pieces)
    Salt and freshly ground pepper

  Balsamic BBQ sauce:
    1 cup balsamic vinegar
    3/4 cup ketchup
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  Combine all the sauce ingredients 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.

  Place a grill pan over medium heat or preheat a gas or charcoal
 grill. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Lightly coat with some
 of the BBQ sauce using a pastry brush. Place the meat on the grill.
 Place the remaining BBQ sauce, still in the small saucepan, over
 low heat or on the edge of a gas or charcoal grill and allow to
 gently simmer while the meat cooks.

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