Chicken breasts with caramelized onions, cranberries and balsamic glazed asparagusPosted: April 14, 2010
What a great, clean eating meal. This was simple to put together and was very very filing. I would season the chicken breasts next time as they seemed plain, but overall this was a great meal! I found this recipe in the latest Clean Eating Magazine and was thrilled to find it wasnt only healthy, but one of their budget meals of the month!
Ingredients: Serves 4
1 bunch asparagus bottoms cut off
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Sea salt and fresh pepper to taste
Olive Oil cooking spray-I used my Misto filled with evoo
1 medium yellow onion thinly sliced
2 tbsp unsweetened dried cranberries
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded thin
Preheat oven to 350. Place asparagus spears on a nonstick cookie sheet or baking pan lined with foil. Drizzle asparagus with balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 mins.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over hight heat for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and mist with cooking spray. Add onion and cook until caramelized. Add cranberries and saute for another 2 mins. Remove from heat but keep warm.
Heat same pan over medium-high heat and add chicken and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side until cooked thru. Season with salt and pepper and add cranberry-onion mixture to pan and cook for 2 more minutes.
Serve warm. I also served with brown rice.
