Tasty 30-Minute One-Pan Balsamic Chicken Recipe May Save the Day

On busy weeknights, easy chicken dinners often save the day. This one-pan balsamic vinaigrette skillet chicken recipe is as easy as it is delicious.

With just a few ingredients and minimal prep, the chicken turns out tender and juicy, and dinner is on the table in just about 30 minutes.

I like to use both chicken breasts and chicken thighs because that balance works for me, but you could use just breasts or just thighs if you prefer. We enjoy this delicious chicken dinner recipe over rice, to soak up the delicious sauce, and with whatever fresh vegetables we have on hand.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Mediterranean or Italian spice blend
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in half
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in quarters

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a large skillet, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic and spices on medium heat.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and toss to coat. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Bring chicken to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
