Balsamic Chicken and Vegetables

Pin It
Other than bottled teriyaki sauce, I think the one thing Chris couldn't live without is vinegar. Therefore whenever I see a recipe with any type of vinegar in it, I'm pretty sure he'll like it. This chicken dish was no exception. Since it's made with the asparagus, carrots and tomatoes right in the pan, I didn't even have to dirty any additional pans making a separate side dish (always a plus in my book). Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1/4 cup bottled Italian salad dressing
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins
  • 10 oz. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
In a small bowl, stir together salad dressing, balsamic vinegar, honey, and crushed red pepper. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Add half of the dressing mixture to skillet; turn chicken to coat. Transfer chicken to a serving platter; cover and keep warm.

Add asparagus and carrots to skillet. Cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender; transfer to serving platter.

Stir remaining dressing mixture; add to skillet. Cook and stir for 1 minute, scraping up browned bits from bottom of skillet. Drizzle the dressing mixture over chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with tomatoes. Makes 4 servings.
