One-Pan Balsamic Chicken and Asparagus

Posted on

This one-pan meal is one of our most frequented weeknight dinners. What’s not to love? It’s healthy, easy, and it has the BEST SAUCE EVER. If you’d like to switch up the veg, green beans, bell peppers, snap peas, and mushrooms would all be great additions. Serve it on its own, or over brown rice or any other of your favorite grains. A little bread on the side would be good too—you need something to soak up that sauce.
