Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

Healthy Fact of the Day

Chicken is a lean source of protein that supports muscle health and overall well-being. When paired with colorful roasted vegetables and a balsamic glaze, it makes for a delicious and balanced meal.

Ingredients

 

For the Balsamic Glazed Chicken:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and black pepper to taste

 

For the Roasted Vegetables:

2 cups baby carrots
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

 

Instructions

For the Balsamic Glazed Chicken:

 

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey or maple syrup, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the balsamic glaze over the chicken, ensuring they are evenly coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  3. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  4. Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking.
  5. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, letting any excess drip off. Reserve the marinade for later.
  6. Sear the chicken breasts for about 2-3 minutes per side until they develop a golden brown crust.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, with an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with the reserved balsamic glaze.

 

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  1. While the chicken is roasting, spread the baby carrots, broccoli florets, and cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables and season with salt and black pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Roast the vegetables in the same oven as the chicken for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are tender and slightly caramelized.
  4. Remove the chicken and vegetables from the oven.
  5. Serve your Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Roasted Vegetables hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
