BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus and Tomatoes

Hello! This is Julia from the food blog (you can also ALWAYS find me on PINTEREST), and today I am sharing with you a delicious recipe for Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus and Tomatoes – healthy, low fat, low cholesterol, low calorie meal, packed with fiber (vegetables) and protein (chicken). It’s so delicious, you will wish all your healthy food tasted like it!

This dish has a Mediterranean AND Italian flare about it, as it is packed with colorful veggies, and the ingredients include both olive oil and balsamic vinegar! This recipe is lean, healthy, yet will not leave you hungry thanks to all the protein and fiber!

If you’re trying to incorporate more healthy delicious meals into your diet – this is the recipe to add to your recipe rotation list!

And, it takes only 30 minutes to make, from start to finish! Start by preparing all the veggies:

sliced veggies, slice carrots, asparagus, chopped tomato

Then, cook the chicken and mix it with the half of the balsamic vinegar mixture:

Then, cook the vegetables (in the same pan – so you will only have to wash one pan!):

Finally, combine everything for a delicious meal and beautiful presentation:

And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:

1) The recipe is very good as is. I would double the sauce as I always love to have lots of sauce! You can use leftover sauce as a salad dressing.

2) If you’re using a different cut of chicken (I actually did – I mistakenly bought boneless, skinless chicken thighs and not chicken breast tenderloins) – make sure to drain all the liquid that the chicken releases after being cooked, before you add the balsamic sauce. That way, the balsamic sauce will not be thinned out by the chicken juices (if you use skinless, boneless chicken thighs like I did). With leaner meat, such as chicken breast, this should not be a problem.
