Food Junkie

Everyone loves food right? I do! It’s hard to juggle eating semi healthy and life. I’ve dabbled with meal prepping but never really stuck with it. When things got busy I went back to my old eating habits. If I don’t meal prep I don’t cook during the week which equals junk food for me! I’ve been doing solid meal prep for about 3 weeks now and it’s so easy to just grab food and go during the week. I’ll be sharing some awesome recipes I find along the way :).  I do mostly a low carb diet to eliminate food sensitivities.

My favorite so far is a Honey Balsamic Chicken and Veggies and its a one pan and done! You can modify the recipe with different vegetables to change it up a bit.

For the Sauce

  • mix  balsamic vinegar, honey, Dijon, garlic, oregano and basil together
  • In large bowl, combine balsamic vinegar mixture and chicken
  • marinate for at least 30 minutes to overnight. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • I used coconut oil to coat my pan.
  • Now place any vegetables you want in the pan. My favorite is zucchini, grape tomatoes, bell peppers, kale, and broccoli but I’ve also used asparagus, and squash too!
  • Place into oven and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through,  about 25-30 minutes. If you use asparagus add it during the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
  • Enjoy!
For the chicken
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

I found the recipe from Damn Delicious and it really is delicious! Let me know if you try it and what you think!
