Easy Balsamic Chicken and Vegetables

You know those videos you see as you’re scrolling through Facebook of simple, delicious-looking meals? Usually I try to save them (unsuccessfully) and completely forget to go back, so many have been lost. But this one I saved and I am very glad I did. This was so easy and so delicious, I know it’s going to become a household favourite. Enjoy!

Easy Balsamic Chicken and Vegetables
Prep: 5-10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

butter or oil for sautéing
two handfuls button mushrooms
large handful green beans or haricots vert
2 chicken breasts, boneless & skinless, sliced in half lengthwise or butterfly
handful grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar (or 2 tbsp balsamic reduction if you have)
2 tbsp honey (or 2 tbsp brown sugar)

Sauté mushrooms and green beans in butter or oil over medium heat. When cooked, remove from pan and set aside. Add chicken to pan and cook through. Remove and set aside with vegetables. Pour Italian dressing, balsamic vinegar and honey into pan, and stir to combine. Add vegetables and chicken back into pan, cover with sauce and cook until warmed through. Add grape tomatoes, and serve.

(Apologies, I overcooked my tomatoes in the picture; would have been better added right before serving in my opinion.)
