Balsamic Chicken Breast


The past few nights I have been eating supper very late - like after 9:00PM. Now I know it's probably not good to eat so close to bed time, but I have to eat something right?!

So last night I had thawed some chicken breast and I didn't feel like making a stir fry. I took a look in my cupboard and I saw the balsamic vinegar I got from my dad that I hadn't really used yet. I put about 1-2 tablespoons in a small bowl and mixed it up with an equal amount of olive oil. I put the 3 chicken breasts in a small casserole dish and seasoned them with salt and pepper, garlic powder, and my Oh So Onion seasoning. I then poured the oil and vinegar over them and moved the chicken around to get the oil underneath them so they didn't stick. I remembered I had minced garlic in the fridge so I sprinkled a little bit on top of each one. I also sprinkled rosemary on top too. Preheat your oven to 350F and cover the dish with aluminum foil. I cooked them for 20 minutes and checked on them, then I let them cook for about 5 minutes longer and turned off the oven but left them in there while my potatoes and broccoli were still cooking. (Ovens vary so make sure you check that they're cooked completely!)

I had added some water to the dish so the chicken would be moist, so I drained a bit of that out when I checked on them after the 20 minutes. Here's the final result:















I made enough for 2 dinners and my lunch. Or I'll probably end up taking the last one for lunch tomorrow.

They turned out pretty good considering I just added random stuff, haha! I hope you enjoy them and let me know how they turned out if you do make them :)

(Only 3 more sleeps until Jamaica!!!!)

I still haven't figured out how I'm going to do my Turbo Fire while I'm there =/ I know there is a gym there but I really REALLY like Turbo Fire. It's so much more fun than running. Hmm... I'll figure something out >:)

Cheers!!~
