One Pan Meal
Balsamic Chicken with Butternut Squash & Leeks
Making a healthy, delicious dinner doesn’t have to be complicated! After a busy day I want something quick, easy, and that preferably doesn’t leave me with a lot to clean up. That’s when this one pan meal is perfect! It’s full of fall flavors and can be made in under 30 minutes. This makes enough for 2, or one very hungry person during bulking season!
2 cups butternut squash, diced
1 cup leeks, sliced
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sage, chopped
¼ cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450º F.
Heat a large pan to medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butternut squash to pan. Season with salt and pepper and saute until slightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Add in leeks and garlic. Saute another 3-5 minutes, until leeks start to wilt.
Make space in the center of the pan and add the chicken breast. Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a small bowl whisk together basamic vinegar, honey, and sage. Pour into the pan and saute for about 3 minutes, until glaze reduces.
Flip the chicken over, pour the broth into the pan, and place in oven. Roast until chicken is finished cooking, about 7-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
