Grilled chicken with fresh asparagus, hearts of palm, and fresh tomatoes sautéed in a reduced balsamic sauce makes this a quick and easy recipe to follow. And, one that puts dinner on the table in a snap!
This is a healthy low-calorie chicken dish that Liz created using only one package of thin chicken cutlets, a few vegetables and her favorite balsamic vinegar. She made this dish using a skillet, some olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper; and she made it in a matter of minutes!
First, she heats only 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large, deep skillet. Next she adds the chicken cutlets, seasons them with salt, pepper and garlic powder and grills them until they are fully cooked. Then transfers the chicken into a deep serving dish.
Using the same skillet, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil, Liz sautés all the vegetables for a few minutes with balsamic vinegar. Once the balsamic is reduced to a savory sauce, the vegetables along with the sauce are poured over the chicken and dinner is served! So easy! The outcome and flavors are amazing!
Grilled Chicken with Hearts of Palm in a Balsamic Sauce
If the asparagus are the large ones, Liz recommends to steam the them for 2 minutes in boiling water, drain and set aside. If the asparagus are thin, no need to steam them.
In a non stick skillet and on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the chicken cutlets, sauté with seasonings, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
Grill both sides for a few minutes, or until golden brown. About 3 to 4 minutes for thinly cutlets, and 5 to 7 minutes per side for thicker cutlets, or until fully cooked.
Remove and transfer to a serving platter.
Using the same skillet, reduce the heat to low. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Then add in the fresh chopped asparagus, chopped tomatoes, hearts of palm, and the balsamic vinegar.
Sauté vegetables for about 3 minutes, stirring, until balsamic is reduced.
