Balsamic chicken with green beans and carrots


Balsamic Chicken with vegetables

This was a super quick, easy meal to make. Also very delicious!


1/4 Cup Bottled Italian Salad Dressing
2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp Honey
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
2 Tbl Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
4-6 Chicken Tenderloins
8 oz Fresh Cut Green Beans
1 Cup carrot, sliced
1 small Tomato, chopped


1. In a small bowl, stir together the salad dressing, vinegar, honey and red pepper.
2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the chicken; cook 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Add half of the dressing mixture to the skillet, turn chicken to coat. Transfer the chicken to a serving plate and cover to keep warm.
3. Add the carrots in first to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, and then add the green beans.  Cook and stir for 3-4 more minutes or until tender and crisp.
4. Add the veggies to the chicken in a serving platter. Pour the remaining dressing mixture into the skillet and cook for about 1 minute. Scrape up all the browned bits, and then drizzle the dressing mixture over the chicken and vegetables. Lastly, top the chicken with the diced tomato.
