Our rich balsamic marinade is made with honey and rosemary. Enjoy it over chicken and veggies alike!

This recipe was originally created as part of our Spring For Flavor recipe feature.

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper, to taste
1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed, cut in half
1 red onion, quartered
Smart Balance® Non-Stick Cooking Spray - Original

 

For the balsamic marinade:

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Smart Balance® Cooking Oil
1 tsp honey
2 tbsp fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano

Recipe Steps

Preheat oven to 400°f. Wash and dry the chicken well with a paper towel, season with salt and pepper.

Combine all the balsamic marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Add chicken, asparagus and onion; toss well to coat.

Spray a large baking sheet or 2 medium baking sheets with non-stick spray. Lay the chicken and vegetables out on the trays in a single layer, so nothing touches each other.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
