    I forgot how great this recipe was! I adjusted the veggies with just doing red onion, zucchini, red pepper and carrots. It was absolutely delicious and so easy. Definitely putting this one on rotation!

  2. I have made this great dinner numerous times for probably about 5 years.   Makes life easier if use gallon Ziploc bags to marinate each the chicken and vegetables separately.  Put with 90 second microwave rice.  Done.  One of many “Skinnytaste” recipes in my repertoire.  Thank. You!

  3. I’ve jumped on the sheet pan bandwagon. Love the shrimp and andouille sausage one! For this balsamic chicken and veggies recipe, do you use fresh herbs or dried? The ingredients sound like fresh (chopped parsley, etc.) but the directions say dried. It would make a difference in the amounts used. Thank you, Gina, for all the great recipes!

  4. I was pleasantly surprised by this dish. Really easy to put together, but loaded with flavor. I chopped up the chicken, mixed it with the roasted vegetables and served it in bowls over pilaf. A really easy flavor packed weeknight dinner. Balsamic vinegar is the winner here! My husband is on a low sodium diet, so even with reducing the amount of added salt, it was fabulous.

  5. I was apprehensive about this at first. I am not a huge lover of chicken, and sometimes the smell of vinegar is just soo much for me.
    But this? THIS, is amazing. I make it with green peppers and broccoli (picky eater in the house) and it tastes amazing. 10 stars from every member of the house, including the head chef cat. Disappers off the pan every time.

    This is one of my family’s all time favorite recipes, along with your other sheet pan recipes as well. I have a neighbor who recently has become ill and have to have a very low sodium diet. This recipe was very easy to modify to fit those needs. I decided to make her enough to freeze for quite a few meals so she can just have something to heat up that is nutritious and not a frozen dinner.

  7. Wow this recipe is incredible! It’s my first sheet pan meal and I loved it. I didn’t pay much attention to the pictures so I ended up halving my chicken the long way oops but it still tasted delicious. The recipe said marinate longer the better for the chicken so I marinated for one day. I added mushrooms cause I had some in my fridge but also used all the vegetables Gina listed. This recipe is really versatile. You can add or omit any vegetables based on your likings. I really like this recipe but I’ve always enjoyed all the recipes on this website. It’s a really good meal.

    This has become a family favorite that my kids often ask for. Tonight’s version included broccoli instead of cauliflower and no zuccini, but lots of mushrooms. So easy and so good!

    This was quite good!  Even my eight and nine year old sons loved it.  I will definitely make it again.

  10. I made this recipe tonight for my husband and me. I have been on Weight Watchers since October 4th and been slowly losing! This recipe was excellent! My hubby gave it high praise. Not everything that I fix that is WW approved gets his praise:) He is the meat and potatoes kind of guy, so I knew I had found a winner when he kept talking about how good this recipe was. This one will definitely be in the rotation around here. I followed the recipe with the exception of using fresh green beans and sliced baby carrots in place of the asparagus and cauliflower. I did marinate the chicken all day, which gave it really good flavor.

  11. Could you also do this in an air fryer? I’m trying not to turn on the oven, since it is getting hot here.

    Excellent! I use cubed russet potatoes and fresh green beans instead of the vegetables called for and white basalmic vinegar (which was all I had on hand). I can see why you could have many variations on this recipe and it would be delicious every time.
