Quick and easy balsamic chicken…

It feels like now that school is back in session, it’s time to get cooking again, even if there isn’t time. So, here is a super quick, easy and yummy meal that we made the other night. It goes well with green beans, which are not paleo, but my kids love them.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb Chicken
  • Trader Joe’s pre-cut onion shallots garlic mixture

(OR use small onion, few garlic cloves, and a shallot, chopped)

  • 2 tsp Thyme or sage
  • 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Some evoo
Here’s what you need to do:
1.  Add some evoo to a pan and mix in the onion, garlic, shallots and cook until brown (about 5 minutes) and set aside.
2.  Now cut chicken into slices, add about 1-2 tsp evoo to warm pan and cook, stiring often for about 7-8 minutes.
3.  Then, turn the stove off and add in garlic, onion, shallot mixture, along with balsamic vinegar, thyme or sage, and some salt.
4.  Stir well and serve warm.


For the green beans, just put 1 cup organic chicken broth (I use the individual packs so I don’t waste any), 1 tbsp Kerrygold butter and some green beans in a sauce pan. Cook on high, let broth come to a boil and cook for about 5-10 more minutes until desired tenderness.  That’s it!  I hope you all enjoy it!

Oh and sorry it’s a quick post, with few pictures, but I am just trying to get caught up on work.  I hope to be cooking some new fun things soon!!
