I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Balsamic Chicken and Tomatoes

Balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, honey and worcestershire sauce combine with tomato juices for a delicious sweet-tart pan gravy elevating plain old chicken breasts to a meal worthy of the weekend!  But easy enough for a weeknight.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
2 tbsps olive oil 
sprinkle of garlic powder
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsps dijon mustard
2 tsps honey
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel then cut into even portions. I cut mine in thirds. Mix the thyme, smoked paprika, salt and pepper together and toss in a bag with the chicken to coat. Rub it in then refrigerate for 2 hours.
In a large skillet heat the olive oil and cook the chicken 4-5 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with garlic powder to taste, then pour the balsamic in and deglaze the pan. Cook 1 minute then remove from heat. Stir the dijon, honey and worcestershire sauce together and pour over the chicken. Cover the pan and bake in a 400°F oven for 15 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, cover and return the pan to the oven for 5 minutes. Finally, uncover and broil 3-4 minutes.

Plate and serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.
Makes 6 servings
