One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Asparagus

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 lb. chicken breast tenders
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, honey, garlic, and red pepper flakes until combined. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining oil. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and sear until golden on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. To pan, add asparagus and tomatoes, season with more salt and pepper, and cook until asparagus is bright green and tomatoes are slightly wilted, 5 minutes or so.
