Honey Balsamic Chicken

Finished product looking good. I even made some vegetables and rice to go along with it.

Brace yourselves, people. I actually had to use the oven for this recipe. And shockingly enough, it turned out pretty well! It got two thumbs up from both parents…and they promised they weren’t just being nice to me.

I got this Honey Balsamic Chicken recipe from my SparkRecipes app, which I found by searching “healthy recipes” in the App Store on my iPhone (I know, I know, this is practically rocket science here). It was a relatively quick dish to make, though I am still working on coordinating all the components of my meals so that they finish cooking at the same time. I usually end up forgetting the vegetables and not timing the rice properly. But when you use those frozen microwaveable bags of green beans (sorry…still a rookie here), it doesn’t matter too much that you forgot the vegetable. God bless the microwave oven.

No modifications to the recipe this time around; I followed the directions the whole way. Ignore the photo in the recipe link above, because that doesn’t seem to be matching up with what the dish actually looks like, for some reason. Instead enjoy the pictures of my attempt at the recipe above and below. It was Italian-esque with a touch of sweet from the honey. If anyone tries the recipe out, let me know how it goes!

Overdid it a bit with the thyme on that piece of chicken in the front. Whoops.
