Need a quick and simple dinner? This Clean Eating Roasted Balsamic Chicken And Tomatoes comes together very quickly. Pop it in the oven, get a few things done, and dinner will be on the table in no time!
This recipe is actually my third attempt at this dish. I originally tried to do it with just spices. Then I added lemon juice on the second round, but didn’t care for the plain flavor. On the third try, I changed a few spices and used balsamic vinegar instead, and it turned out really delicious!
This dish is easy to prep ahead of time. Perfect for weekend prep too!! If you buy the chicken raw, you could easily prep this and freeze a portion. So it’s great for those of you cooking for just yourselves too. This is a great recipe for stocking up in the freezer!
I paired this with a salad to keep things simple. But you could easily make some brown rice and more cooked veggies to complete the meal. Simple, tasty and versatile.
