  • “HooYa!! This was indescribably delicious. So packed with flavor. The sauce is kickin’. I really liked the balsamic vinegar flavor and the honey. I sprinkled a little fresh ground Parmesan on top of the chicken and veggies. Yumsville ;)”

  • “This was great, and quite easy.I used fresh asparagus, and served it over pasta.Mmmmmmm.My family loved it.”

  • “Thanks Derf for a recipe that really shines! I have made it at least 10 times now, and even bought a $20.00 bottle of Italian basalmic vinegar just for this dish. I have experimented and decided the sweeter basalmics deliver the best punch for this recipe.The chicken turns out succulent and moist. Tenders or thinly sliced chicken breasts are perfect for this dish.The asparagus and carrots are stir fried to a delicious crisp tender treat taking care not to overcook them. I sometimes use the prepackaged shredded carrots as an additional time saver.The dressing is out of this world with an occasional pizazz of crushed red pepper to give it a little zing. Topped with diced fresh tomatoes, Basalmic Chicken With Veggies is unbelievably delicious, and so very healthy too. This is a dish that comes together quick, and is not to be missed!”

  • “Good dish, very different from the norm.I would make sure you have a good balsalmic for this one because it really soaks in the flavor.I served with some noodles and it was great!”

  • “This was some GREAT chicken! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe – for once – something outside the ‘norm’ for chicken – hooray! Low-carb, too!Thanks so much for sharing! Will serve again!”

  • “I love skillet meals and this one was very good, Dorothy. I ended up using closer to a pound of chicken and chose to use fresh asparagus. The sauce was what brought it all together and gave the meat and veggies a tangy-zesty flavor. Next time, I might try this over pasta. I think it would work very well. Thanks for posting it.”

  • “Very tasty! I made as directed except used 8 oz. chicken. (I preferred to cut it into bite-size pieces before cooking.) It doesn’t quite serve 4, I don’t think. We had it over jasmine rice and it just served the 2 of us.”

  • “This recipe has made it into our regularly rotating recipes. I love how inexpensive it is to make. I usually cut up the chicken breasts into chunks instead of whole breasts, and I usually end up doubling the sauce amount. I have made this for company on two occasions, and they have loved it both times. Thanks for sharing such a tasty recipe!”

  • “This dish was really tasty!I did not make the veg’s with it, just the chicken, but it was very good.I marinated the Italian dressing, balsamic, and honey with the chicken for about 2 hours before pan sauteeing it.It was really good, served with steamed broccoli.Thank you, Derf!”

  • “This is the first recipe that I’ve tried on this website and so far so good!! I never would have thought to combine Italian salad dressing and Balsamic Vinegar together in a stir fry type dish but it went together wonderfully!!!”

  • “The flavor of this dish was just outstanding.Yet so quick and easy to put together.I used chicken breast that I pounded flat, then marinated overnight in some Italian salad dressing as suggested by one of the other reviewer.The sauce was a very good combination of flavors.”

  • “Great! I seasoned the chicken while it was cooking so that the chicken’s flavor wouldn’t be dependent on the sauce.And I used a garlic salad dressing because we didn’t have Italian.Will try this again sometime with Italian dressing, because Italian dressing probably has a more subtle flavor.”

  • “This is great for a quick weeknight meal, my only suggestion is next time I will marinate the chicken a few hours before frying.Otherwise, very tasty.”

  • “Excellent meal.Loved the flavor. Thanks for the posting!!”

  • “Our family loved this chicken dish, and will make it often.When the asparagus season is over, we have found green beans a great substitute.Lovely flavours, cannot get enough of balsamic vinegar!”

  • “I just made this tonight and found it to be quite nice. I made it with just 1 Tablespoon of oil and the fat content came down considerably.I like the idea of using the purchased grated carrots as it saved alot of time.I will make this again soon.I was at kind of a loss to what to serve with it though so any suggestions would be welcome”

  • “This is the best sauce I’ve ever had with chicken. I just make it without the veggies though. Thanks.”
