Ever since Vito came back from Uni he’s been the one who consistently been eating dinner at home. Not every night tho’ but compared to Vinny and Claudia (who rarely eat dinner at home) he’s the one who eats dinner at home more often.

Tonight, this is what I prepared for dinner. I’m sharing this with you ‘cos first, it’s yummy and second, it’s healthy (millennial food).

Honey Balsamic Sheet Pan Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken breast (4 each), trimmed
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, a tablespoon of olive oil, garlic, thyme, rosemary, chili flakes, salt, & pepper. Stir well to mix.
  3. Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over the top. Seal and toss the chicken to evenly coat. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. While the chicken marinates, place the potatoes and cherry tomatoes on a sheet pan. Drizzle the remaining olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and stir to coat. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and toss the green beans with the potatoes and the tomatoes.
  6. Remove the marinated chicken breasts from the plastic bag, reserving the remaining marinade in the bag. Place the marinated chicken, evenly spaced, on top of the vegetables. Pour the marinade from the bag over the top of the chicken and vegetables.
  7. Return the sheet pan back in the oven. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, periodically basting the chicken with pan juices, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  8. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon the pan juices over the top of each chicken breast before serving.
