Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 ¼ lb skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head garlic separated into cloves and peeled
  • 1 red onion cut into wedges
  • ½ head fennel sliced
  • 2 cups red grapes
  • 2 tbsp balsamic reduction
  • 4 sprigs rosemary

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • In a cast iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and cook, presentation side down until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the other side for just 2 minutes and then transfer to the baking sheet.
  • Add the garlic, onion, fennel, grapes and rosemary to the pan and drizzle with the additional oil. Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the balsamic and return for an additional 5 minutes in the oven until the vegetables are very caramelized and the chicken reaches 165 F.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

This sheet pan balsamic chicken recipe is as simple as it gets! Even though browning the chicken makes it a two step meal, it can absolutely be a one-step sheet pan dinner if you're in an even bigger rush. I just kinda like the added flavour that comes from browning the chicken first, but it certainly doesn't make or break the recipe.
I would also suggest using a meat thermometer to ensure that the chicken is fully cooked. We want to aim for an internal temperature of 165 F.
In addition, if you are REALLY pressed for time I would also suggest purchasing peeled garlic cloves instead of the whole bulb. You will easily be saving yourself 5 minutes of prep time. Plus I think we can all agree that peeling garlic is a pretty annoying step of any recipe, especially if you are peeling the whole clove.
