- 2 tbsp ovocado oil
- 2 cloves finely minced garlic
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 130-140g each

- Preheat the oven to 425F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a jar or sealed container, combine the avocado oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar and Italian seasoning.
- Lay the chicken on the baking sheet. Use a basting brush to coat each piece generously with the balsamic mixture.
- Roast the chicken for 15 minutes while you prep the rest of the recipe.
- After chopping all veggies to roughly the same size, toss them in a large bowl with the remaining balsamic mixture. Stir well to coat.
- After the chicken has been in the oven for 15 minutes, carefully take it out and scatter the veggies around it on the same pan.
- Sprinkle generously with sea salt and black pepper, as well as the fresh herbs (optional).
- Continue cooking for another 15 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
- Divide the chicken and veggies between plates/bowls. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
