Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

>> Thursday, September 16, 2010

Remember yesterday I said that we were trying to eat lighter and healthier? Last night's dinner recipe is courtesy of  Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes.  Although I am not following the WW PLAN, this is a healthy choice meal and is a complete meal in one pan, perfect to make on a busy weeknight. Prep time is quick, throw it in the oven and it's ready in 35-40 minutes. For easy clean up you can make this in disposable tins.

  • 10 (20 oz) boneless skinless chicken thighs

  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced in half long way
  • 2 red onions, chopped in large chunks
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and sliced
  • 2 tbsp oregano or thyme
  • 4 leaves fresh sage, chopped
Preheat oven to 425°. Wash and dry the chicken well with a paper towel. Combine all the ingredients together and using your hands and arrange in a very large roasting pan. The vegetables should not touch chicken or it will steam. All ingredients should bespread out in a single layer, if necessary use two baking dishes or disposable tins to achieve this. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes.
