Rustic Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes and Asparagus

My daughter told me about this recipe that she saw on a local TV station where she lives.  It is probably the FASTEST meal I have ever made!  You can make the entire thing in less than 15 minutes!  It is very healthy and has great flavor (if you like balsamic vinegar - which I definitely DO!) .  Thanks for the great recipe Jen!

This is a rustic Italian dish that is great and SO easy!

Simply put the chicken, tomatoes and asparagus on a cookie sheet.

 Pour the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and basil over the other ingredients.

 This is what it looks like after just 7-8 minutes under the broiler.

Pour all the ingredients over pasta, add the cheese and enjoy!

Rustic Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes and Asparagus

Adapted from a recipe by Laura Wolford


1 lb. penne pasta

4 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces

1 carton of grape tomatoes

½ c olive oil

½ c balsamic vinegar

about 12 fresh basil leaves chopped or dried basil

10 spears of thin asparagus cut into 1” pieces

1 tsp minced garlic

4 oz grated Parmesan cheese


1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile toss chicken pieces, tomatoes, asparagus, oil, vinegar, garlic and basil on a cookie sheet that has a 1” lip.

3. Broil for 7-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (I wasn’t sure it would cook that quickly, but it does!) Pour the entire mixture over pasta. Use a rubber scraper to get every bit of the yummy seasoning from the baking sheet. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
