So here’s another really really good recipe for chicken ~ Balsamic Chicken ~ which is also paleo.
Have you ever used balsamic vinegar with chicken before? Â I had tried a different recipe called Balsamic and Rosemary Chicken BreastsÂ which also came out very good and was quite simple also.
Here are the ingredients you’ll be needing (olive oil not shown):
I coarsely chopped the vegetables.
Next I added the veggies to the skillet …
I cut my chicken into smaller pieces so they are more manageable and you don’t have to use a knife. Then I seasoned them with the salt and pepper.
Once the veggies are almost cooked through, I moved them to the side and added the chicken to the skillet.
When one side of the chicken was browned, I turned it over to the other side.
Then I added the balsamic vinegar and the canned tomatoes.
Ahhh … this is going to taste really good. I can smell it …
Ready to see the recipe?
- 1 large yellow onion, coarsely sliced
- 2Â bell peppers, sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/8Â teaspoon red pepper flakes (more if you want it spicy)
- 4Â pieces skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into smaller pieces
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1Â – 15 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
- Coat a large skillet with olive oil and heat it over medium heat.
- Add the onion and bell pepper and sautÃ© until the vegetables start to soften.
- If the vegetables start to stick, add a tad more olive oil.
- Add the garlic and red pepper flakes then sautÃ© for a minute or so.
- Cut the chicken thighs into smaller pieces then season them with the salt and pepper on both sides.
- Move the vegetables to one side and add the chicken to the skillet so that each piece will touch the bottom of the skillet.
- When one side of the chicken is browned, turn the chicken over to the other side.
- Add the balsamic vinegar along with the canned tomatoes, and bring this to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered for about 30 minutes.
- Stir occasionally to make sure everything is cooking through.
And that’s it! You can serve this on a bed of rice or over noodles (we use pumpkin ginger noodles that we found in a local natural food store).
Then, sit back and enjoy!
