Here’s a nice quick and healthy dinner idea. I found this one on www.skinnytaste.com
and have made this a few times. For a quick meal it’s very tastey and healthy.
For the most part I have keep most of it the same but have changed a few things.
What you will need:
Boneless chicken: I use 5 boneless skinless chicken breast and cut them up into strips. Or you can use the boneless skinless thighs like they recommend.
Asparagus: 20 medium asparagus (I usually throw in extra)
Carrots: 1 Cup (Peel and slice long ways into strips) I have used the baby carrots a few times but they do take a little longer to cook.
Bell Peppers: 3 ( I usually try and get the larger peppers so I get more and I will usually do a red, a yellow and a green, just to add color)
Mushrooms: Sliced. 1 to 2 packages depending on the size (they say about 10 oz)
Snow Peas or Snap Peas: I also added one of these (not called for in the original)
Balsamic Vinegar: They say a 1/2 cup and 2 tbsps, but I usually do 3/4 cups just to make sure everything has the flavor
Olive Oil: Extra Virgin 1/4 cup
Sugar: 1 tsp is what they suggest. I have made it both with or without the sugar
Rosemary: 3 tbsp fresh rosemary but I have also used the package rosemary from the spice section. I usually only add 2 tbsp
Garlic: 2 cloves is what they suggest, I usually add only 1 at the most, because I’m not big on garlic.
Oregano or Thyme: 2 tbsp I have only used the oregano since that is what I have on hand
Sage: 2 leaves fresh and chopped is what they suggest. I have also used 1 tbsp of the package sage if I don’t have fresh on hand
Salt and Pepper to taste: I use sea salt, and usually just add 2 grinds of both pepper and salt from my grinders
Preheat Oven at 425.
Wash and dry chicken. Use a paper towel to dry.
In a large mixing bowl (make sure large enough to be able to mix) add all the ingredients together. I usually put in all my veggies and chicken. Then in another bowl i put the olive oil, balsamic vingar, and all the spices and whisk together well. After I make sure it is mixed well then i slowly pour it over the chicken and veggies in the other bowl, mixing as I go to make sure everything is coated well. (They say you can mix it all in the one bowl if you want)
Then take either a roasting pan or I have used a cookie sheet covered with foil. Lay the chicken and veggies out on the pan in a single layer. You might need 2 pans to lay out in a single layer. Bake for 35-40 mins depending on your oven. Then serve. I have served it over a bed of brown rice once.
Enjoy and let me know what you think
