Sheet Pan Lemon Balsamic Chicken and Veggies

I think there are two types of people in this world. There are those who find doing dishes meditative and soothing. My sister and my father in law are both in that category. Then there’s me. I love cooking and baking more than almost anything, but I despise doing dishes. So when I am dreaming up recipes I try to use as few pans and dishes as possible. That’s why I am seriously in love with this recipe for sheet pan lemon balsamic chicken and veggies. It all roasted on one sheet tray for the easiest clean up ever!

My recipe for sheet pan lemon balsamic chicken and veggies was all about this gorgeous marinade. I used lemon flavored white balsamic vinegar and it made the whole dish sing. I bought it at my favorite oil and vinegar shop on impulse and I am so happy I did. Zesty Italian salad dressing, basil and seasoning brought it all together. I poured half of that amazing marinade into a zip top bag with the chicken.
While the chicken marinated, I tossed the veggies with the remaining marinade. The colors were so gorgeous with green brussel sprouts, red grape tomatoes and orange carrots.
After that, I just laid everything out on my sheet tray. The veggies went on one half and the chicken went on the other half all in a single layer. It took 25 minutes in my 400 degree oven for the sheet pan lemon balsamic chicken and veggies to cook to perfection!

When it was done, I just served everything immediately. Oh my goodness, that marinade made everything so flavorful. It had a lot of Italian influence, which I loved. The vinegar also really made the chicken so tender and juicy. Best of all, it could not have been easier to put this recipe together. I love it when dinner is a cinch! Hope you all love it too. xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1.2 pounds chicken tenders boneless and skinless
  • 1/4 cup white lemon balsamic vinegar can be found in most oil and vinegar shops
  • 1/4 cup zesty Italian dressing
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 whole basil leaves roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • 2 whole carrots peeled and cut into rounds
  • 10 ounces brussel sprouts halved
  • salt as needed
  • freshly cracked black pepper as needed
Instructions
  1. First, put the chicken into a large zip top bag. Then combine the balsamic, zesty Italian dressing, honey, basil, garlic powder and dried onion in a bowl and whisk it all together. Pour half of that mixture into the zip top bag with the chicken and squish it around to make sure the chicken is coated. Set it in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes. While the chicken marinates, combine the tomatoes, carrots and brussel sprouts in the bowl of remaining marinade and toss it all together thoroughly. Set it aside.
  2. When the chicken is almost done marinating, preheat the oven to 400 and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat. Lay out the marinated chicken in a single layer on one half, and the marinated veggies in a single layer on the other side. Season everything with a sprinkle of salt and pepper on top, then roast everything for 25 minutes. Take it out and serve immediately. Enjoy!
