One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies | Cooking Classy

I’m always on the lookout for new easy dinners to try, plus I always love a new healthy recipe. This One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies couldn’t get any easier! This is a a 20 minute meal that is sure to please! The flavor is spot on delicious and it has just enough versatility going on to keep things interesting. And the flavor? With the word balsamic in the title you know it’s got to be good right? It is so good! Who knew a dinner that was so easy could taste so incredible?

Also, I have some exciting news! I’ve been wanting to launch my own online kitchen shop for years and with the help of my dedicated husband and a few friends I finally have!!! I would love you guys to check it out (HERE)! A few of my favorites are the vanilla beans (duh!) and the herb savor (I’d gotten so tired of throwing out herbs so quickly and have finally found a solution). We searched for the highest quality vanilla beans and want to sell them at the best price. They are Grade A Gold Vanilla Beans (also certified organic and gluten-free) and trust me you’ll have a very hard time finding anything better! They are so plump and you will definitely be getting your moneys worth! There aren’t a lot of products yet, as it hopefully grows then I will continue to add more products all the time. I’d love your support so please check it out and see if there’s anything you’d like! No pressure though :). I value your readership so much and never want to push anything on you, I only want to share the products I like with you.

This is a dinner or lunch I’m definitely adding to my rotation! I loved everything about it, the flavor, appearance, simple prep and of course the easy clean up! All around win with this one!

For this recipe look for thinner stalks of asparagus. Not only does it cook faster and more evenly with the carrots, but it tastes better (if the thicker ones are all they happen to have they will work okay too). Also, I recommend using the Kraft light dressing with this recipe because it has a thicker consistency than most italian dressings which will help the dressing coat the chicken and veggies better (and bonus it’s skinnier than the traditional oil heavy versions).

Enjoy!

One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 13 minutes

Yield: About 3 - 4 servings

One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp Italian salad dressing (I recommend using Kraft light Italian it's the perfect consistency for this and it's what I used)
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 1 1/4 lbs chicken breast tenderloins
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed of tough ends, chopped into 2-inch pieces (look for thinner stalks. Green beans are another good option)
  • 1 1/2 cups matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

Directions

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together salad dressing, balsamic vinegar, honey and red pepper flakes, set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste, then place chicken evenly in skillet. Cook about 6 - 7 minutes, rotating once halfway through cooking, until chicken has cooked through (meanwhile, chop asparagus and tomatoes). Add half the dressing mixture to skillet and rotate chicken to evenly coat. Transfer chicken to a large plate or a serving platter while leaving sauce in skillet. Add asparagus and carrots to skillet, season with salt and pepper to taste and cook, stirring frequently, until crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer veggies to plate or platter with chicken.
  • Add remaining dressing mixture to skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes to chicken and veggies and drizzle dressing mixture in pan over top (or return chicken and veggies to pan and toss to coat).

  • Diane: I’m usually not so prompt with trying new recipes, so matter how delicious they look in the photos. I saw this post yesterday evening and made a run to the grocery store last night so that I’d have all of the ingredients on hand for tonight’s dinner. I did, however, substitute fresh green beans for the asparagus.)

    This was absolutely fabulous! I think I may have been a bit heavy-handed with the red pepper flakes though, because hubby thought it was a bit too spicy (He has a wimpy palate.)

    I would not hesitate to serve this to dinner guests. It came together so quickly and easily, and was quite impressive-looking– just like your great photos! February 19, 2015 at 6:38pm Reply

    • amy hipps: Oh that’s what i did. I love almost every veggie and fruit but Asparagus….. Guess it’s an acquired taste. The green beans however complimented the dish and my taste buds nicely. February 23, 2016 at 3:11am Reply

  • Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg: I’m always looking for quick and simple recipes on busy nights; this dish seems like the perfect solution to my “what should I make for dinner” woes. The chicken looks tender and flavorful. I love the use of color with the tomatoes and asparagus. February 19, 2015 at 7:07pm Reply

  • Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat: I have had a ton of balsamic in my pantry for a few months now and haven’t had a use for it. I’m excited I can finally get rid of it when I make this! February 19, 2015 at 7:25pm Reply

    • Tiffany: If you ever end up with lots of balsamic vinegar and nothing to do with it again, try marinating chicken breasts in it then grilling them…It’s amazing! Makes the juiciest yummiest chicken EVER! It’s seriously my go to marinade for anything chicken related. April 23, 2015 at 4:28pm Reply

      • Amy: Just the balsamic by itself as the marinade? April 25, 2016 at 10:05pm Reply

  • Danielle Wooding @ New England Daughter: This looks great! I’m always on the look out for not so carb focused meals, but usually one-pan meals are pasta pasta pasta. Very refreshing! I’m going to have to try this. Maybe tonight! February 20, 2015 at 10:00am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think it would also work fine in a slow cooker. March 15, 2015 at 1:10pm Reply

      • mandy: I would NOT use a slow cooker, it cooks fast and you will loose the crispness of the veggies. July 28, 2015 at 6:31pm Reply

  • Ellen: This doesn’t just look delicious, it’s amazing!! We made it with fresh green beans and chicken thighs instead of asparagus and tenders, and I whipped up some Italian dressing by halving the basic Italian dressing recipe on Epicurious. I literally licked the sauce off my plate-something I never do. It’s super easy and incredibly yummy. March 22, 2015 at 5:18pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’d love to try that dressing! I’m so glad you liked this Ellen! April 15, 2015 at 10:45pm Reply

  • Ellen: We made this last night, and it is amazing! We substituted chicken thighs for tenders, and used green beans instead of asparagus. I also made the Italian dressing rather than using the bottled variety from the Epicurious Basic Italian Dessing recipe. I licked my plate, literally. The sauce is delicious!!

  • Laura: Would it make a difference if I used balsamic vinaigrette instead of balsamic vinegar? April 23, 2015 at 2:17pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: It won’t be quite as strong of a balsamic flavor and it would add more oil so I’d stick with straight balsamic vinegar. April 27, 2015 at 10:52pm Reply

  • Randa: Would it be okay to use brown sugar instead of honey? I don’t have honey and would love to make it tonight!! April 28, 2015 at 3:58pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should be okay but I’d wait until the last few minutes to add it probably so it doesn’t caramelize, then next time I’d recommend trying it with honey it lends a great flavor. April 29, 2015 at 6:04pm Reply

  • Carly: Made this today; deviated from the recipe only to use 1/2 tbsp less honey, nearly a full tbsp red pepper flakes (some like it hot), and to cook the cherry tomatoes a bit more. LOVED IT. It’s food for four people but I swear I had to keep myself from eating the whole thing at a go. Great, healthy recipe — thanks so much for this! June 9, 2015 at 12:06pm Reply

  • Shelby: Made this tonite….used green beans instead of asparagus. It was really good….ended up doubling the recipe and cooking the whole thing in a wok instead of a skillet. The green beans took quite a while to cook (ended up putting them in the microwave for about 2 minutes to finish them….the sauce for this dish is really tasty. June 12, 2015 at 9:17pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I haven’t tried them yet, but use I’d trim the ends and no I wouldn’t recommend canned green beans because they don’t have the right texture for this and they won’t hold up very well. June 17, 2015 at 10:44pm Reply

  • Jasline: I need to make this dish for 20 people. Can it be made in the oven? June 16, 2015 at 9:45pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should be fine, I’d probably cook it at about 375 – 400 in several baking dish of course and I might add the veggies halfway through. June 17, 2015 at 10:39pm Reply

  • Nicole: Would it be okay to sub red pepper for the tomato? Would that change the flavor too much? July 6, 2015 at 12:30pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think that would be a good substitution. I would saute along with the asparagus. July 6, 2015 at 11:30pm Reply

  • Joelle: would this work with boneless skinless chicken breasts? July 8, 2015 at 2:18pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes, but I would cut them up into strips to make chicken tenders out of them. They cook faster that way. July 8, 2015 at 11:47pm Reply

  • Jeannie: Loved this recipe! Made it with the asparagus and carrots as directed, left out red pepper flakes, but flavor was excellent. Will certainly make it again. Thanks so much July 20, 2015 at 2:08pm Reply

  • Maja: Lovely dish. So quick and easy! I was hesitant about using the salad dressing to cook with but it turned out great! Added some cooked brown rice in with the veggies to bulk it up a little and it was fantastic! July 27, 2015 at 5:35am Reply

  • Angelito: To be quite honest I was sceptical as I was concerned about overpowering acidic taste but the cooking time was enticing and I had all the ingridients (green beans vs. asparagus). What can I say? Phenomenal! My monstrously picky family had inhaled their portions and I am setting some aside to take to the office for lunch. Family suggestion (not mine) – serve with mashed potatoes. Interesting. Bravo! This is definitely a keeper. I also added some squeezed garlic to the souce but I am a garlic addict. Many thanks for the wonderful recipe. August 4, 2015 at 11:16pm Reply

  • Lindsay: This was amazing! I made it with green beans instead, added some onion rings, and made my own Italian dressing using whatever Italian spices were in my cabinet, red wine vinegar, and olive oil. I also cut back on the honey a little bit and it was perfect! Even my boyfriend loved it and he can be quite picky. August 7, 2015 at 9:54am Reply

    Mighty punch in the flavor category!
    Delish!! Now it is going to be part of my
    recipe rotation!! August 14, 2015 at 4:37pm Reply

  • Summer: i am making that tonight. I love balsamic vinaigrette. I only use that dressing on my salads. I like quick & easy meals. I think this will become a regular in my household. But I want to say that it will take more than 6~7 minutes to cook the chicken. Especially if you are using big chicken breasts like I am. And watch out for the jumping olive oil in your skillet while cooking the chicken. It can get furious on you. Keep a check on your heat range. Enjoying these tonight. August 27, 2015 at 3:01pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes thicker chicken breasts would take longer that’s why the 5 oz is recommend but I know they can be hard to come by that small which is why it also works great to cut the big chicken breasts into chicken strips (tenders) then that way the outsides wont burn before they’ve had a chance to cook through. And I recently just bought a splatter screen for the jumping oil like you say it does help quite a bit. I hope you love this recipe! August 27, 2015 at 7:21pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: The honey doesn’t really make it sweet it mostly just balances out the tang of the vinegar. You could reduce the amount by half though if you’re worried about it. I hope you both love it! September 27, 2015 at 11:10am Reply

I ended up having to finish my chicken in the oven since it wasn’t thawed completely. Definitely will make again! (though I think I’d do the chicken and veggies in two pans cause I felt like my timing was off. One pan is great but everything being done at the right time is better for us).

Two picky boys, especially when it comes to veggies, were fighting for the bottom of the plate and complaining there wasn’t enough. I made this recipe to spec with the exception of the epicurious italian dressing recipe instead of Kraft, and beans and broccoli instead of asparagus. That would have been pushing it.

  • Tammy: My daughter and I made this, it was wonderful!!! Thank You for such a wonderful recipe!! Even her boys, age 11 and 8 just loved it!! All blended so perfect!!!! The next time I made it was for my husband, I replaced red onions and mushrooms instead of using the carrots and tomato”s, I love red onions and mushrooms, to be honest tho I preferred it with the carrots and tomato”s!! Of course I had asparagus with both :) March 12, 2016 at 5:11pm Reply

  • Katie: Made this tonight for the first time and it was great! I increased the amount of chicken (used 3 breasts and cut them into strips) and red pepper flakes. I also didn’t have any balsamic vinegar so I used a red wine vinegar+sugar substitute that I found online. The extra spice of the red pepper flakes was a perfect complement to the sweetness of the sugar/honey. Next time I’ll try it true to the recipe with balsamic vinegar, but it still turned out to be delicious. March 13, 2016 at 8:02pm Reply

  • Lisa: Made this tonight, no carrots, did not have any… I thought it rocked! Very delish! Fairly easy to get done too! Definitely going into the loop of dinners! Will get carrots next time! March 14, 2016 at 7:09pm Reply

  • Robin: This was great. I just used the vegetables I had: zucchini, onions, small red peppers, onions, and mushrooms. I just loved the sauce. March 27, 2016 at 7:16pm Reply

  • Ruth: This recipe sounds great and I really want to make it, but I have a quick question about it! How is the asparagus and carrots cooked? It’s not explained in the recipe. Thank you! April 3, 2016 at 7:59pm Reply

    • CYNTHIA HOLBERT: After you remove your chicken just toss the green beans or asparagus and carrots in the same pan and saute. I put a lid over the pan after a few minutes to kind of steam the veggies. April 4, 2016 at 1:29pm Reply

  • CYNTHIA HOLBERT: I made this today and it was really good. Very close to a really awesome lean cuisine meal I ate years ago and never could find again. Next time I will add some sliced garlic to the veggie mix and serve over angel hair pasta. April 4, 2016 at 1:28pm Reply
