Balsamic Glazed Chicken
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (2 large pieces sliced in half lengthwise to make 4 pieces)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup low-fat Italian salad dressing
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 and 1/2 Tablespoon honey to taste
1 cup of asparagus, trimmed of tough ends, chopped into 2-inch pieces (Look for thinner stalks; Green beans are another good option!)
1/2 cup matchstick carrots
1 cup grape tomatos, halved lengthwise
1 heaping cup of baby spinach
Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a sauté pan, add minced garlic and cook until lightly golden. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown and then flip the chicken, seasoning the second side with salt and pepper and cooking until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pan. Add the crushed red pepper flakes and stir in pan. Remove pan from heat, add the salad dressing, balsamic vinegar and honey, stir to combine. Return pan to heat and add chicken back to the pan. Add the asparagus and cook until desired tenderness, add the matchstick carrots, tomatoes and baby spinach. Toss vegetables in sauce to coat. Plate, serve and enjoy!
