Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp ovocado oil
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning (or a blend of any of these: dried oregano, basil, rosemary, saje, marjoram, thyme)
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 130-140g each
  • 1/4 small red onion, diced into 1” pieces
  • 4 cups sliced or diced zucchini (green, yellow, or a mix of both)
  • 1 yellow and 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • sea salt + black pepper
  • fresh parsley and basil leaves (optional, to garnish/serve)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a jar or sealed container, combine the avocado oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar and Italian seasoning.
  3. Lay the chicken on the baking sheet. Use a basting brush to coat each piece generously with the balsamic mixture.
  4. Roast the chicken for 15 minutes while you prep the rest of the recipe.
  5. After chopping all veggies to roughly the same size, toss them in a large bowl with the remaining balsamic mixture. Stir well to coat.
  6. 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.
  7. Sprinkle generously with sea salt and black pepper, as well as the fresh herbs (optional).
  8. Continue cooking for another 15 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  9. Divide the chicken and veggies between plates/bowls. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
