Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Fingerlings and Endive


Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time Total: 40 min

Serves: 2


  • 2 Chicken breasts, fat trimmed
  • 1/4 C Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 TBS Butter
  • 10-15 Fingerling potatoes, small
  • 10 Mushroom slices
  • 1-2 Endive
  • 1 Clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 TBS olive oil
  • 1/4 C Chicken Stock
  • Freshly ground sea salt and pepper
  1. Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Scrub potatoes throughly, and place in a baking dish with mushrooms- drizzle 1/2 TBS of olive oil and chicken stock on top of potatoes along with minced garlic. Place in oven for 20-40 min or until done.  ***During the last 10 min cut the endive in half and rub around on bottom of the potato pan to moisten and then nestle the endive halves in the potato mixture, salt and pepper and bake for the remaining 10 min.
  3. When potatoes have cooked for about 20 min you can start the chicken.
  4. Heat large brasier to medium heat (I prefer one with a lid, because it can get messy).  Salt and pepper the chicken breast and place in heated brasier, drizzle with 1/2 of balsamic and 1/2 TBS of butter and simmer for 6-8 min, flip and repeat with remaining balsamic and butter until cooked throughly.  The balsamic and butter should caramelize on the chicken, not burn 🙂
Serve with a green of your choice, I chose brussel sprouts.

About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
