Quick and Easy Balsamic Chicken

Wellness tip-Get up and moving! It is easy to lose track of time at work and wind up sitting down for 8 hours straight. Set an alarm or reminder on your calendar/clock to get up and stretch every hour to avoid cramps and pain.

Hello friends! While I can write about peanut butter and breakfast recipes for days, I’ll switch things up and give you a quick and easy balsamic chicken recipe that requires minimal hands on preparation. I’ve adapted this recipe from a few different balsamic chicken recipes I’ve used. You can service this chicken with pasta, brown rice, or potatoes.

Serves 2

Time 30 minutes


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (or oregano and basil if you don’t have rosemary)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix the ingredients (not including the chicken) in a small bowl
  3. Place aluminum foil on a baking sheet and spray with PAM (or similar cooking spray)
  4. Place the chicken on the baking sheet
  5. Cover both sides of the chicken with the mixture. Let it marinade for 10 minutes
  6. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes (or longer depending on the thickness of the chicken
  7. Serve with sides such as broccoli, rice, pasta, or whatever you choose
