Honey balsamic chicken with veggies is one of the favourite recipes of my husband with only a few ingredients (potato, cauliflower & big chunky onion cut ). This recipe simply juicy, reach in colour, simply delicious recipe. If you are too busy in life like me, manage your whole family, children, husband & obliviously you are the only home manager, who manages all this along with your fitness, then this recipe is the perfect one. Now, I love slow cooker honey balsamic chicken recipe it takes 30 minutes to cook & another half an hour for the balsamic style chicken marination.
I like to bake the veggies along with the chicken in the roaster oven; If you are planning skillet (gas or induction oven baked) balsamic style chicken, then either you have to separately prepare the balsamic vegetables for chicken or you can eat it with balsamic salad with roasted chicken. Because, the veggies will be badly roasted with the chicken, & one more thing I want to suggest you; please go for roaster oven. Because, this balsamic recipe have sugar element-honey, which is badly roast the chicken during skillet baking. The most delicious part about this recipe; you can consume this chicken recipe- in lunches & as well as in dinner.

Few advisory words, watch before cooking:
I like to share with you, that the potatoes are the starchy foods & it is totally a simple carb; that spike up our blood sugar level. That’s why, if you are preparing the grilled honey balsamic chicken for the dinner; have diabetics patients, then simply avoids this recipe for dinner, please read more (1,2).
The same piece of advice applied is for honey; yes it’s a healthy food, rich in many different nutrients & lots of antioxidants. But, if you are in any medical condition, then ask him or her, what to eat & what not to eat ob regular basis.
Not all soy sauces are gluten-free, try to use gluten-free sauces. Soy sauces are added in the food during marination time; according to health.com, soy sauces help certain digestive bacteria, for better digestion. Additionally it provides an aromatic flavor to dishes; we also use this ingredient in chicken pasta balsamic or even Chinese style cooking.
In other non-honey & honey balsamic chicken recipes, I have used fined chopped ginger & garlic’s, even their pest also. But, here we will prepare the chicken & veggies together under roaster oven (kinda one pan honey balsamic chicken food). That’s why, I will use the powder for chicken marination & the leftover marination mixture we will use in the veggies before cooking.

Slice the veggies the best few ingredients veggies are the potato, tomato & cauliflower; green beans are optional & big chopped red onion. We will make grilled honey balsamic chicken skillet; baked oven recipe that’s why dressing the chicken & veggies together & sprinkle the leftover balsamic mixture over the veggies; add little bit salt, (nearly one third teaspoon) & baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degree. If you set the oven temperature at 450 degrees then the recipe will be prepare within 20 minutes.

What Is The Perfect Temperature To Cook The Balsamic Honey Chicken?
Well, I like healthy slow cooker recipe that’s why, I cook the chicken at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (150 C). But if you are planning to cook crispy balsamic chicken (with skin) drumsticks without the veggies; then go for 425F to 450F (Fahrenheit).

You can store the recipe for 48 to 56 hours in the refrigerator, & consume it as it is; or you can make the balsamic chicken pasta or consume with brown rice or tortilla; or with balsamic salad chicken combination also very delicious.
How Do I Use Balsamic Glaze (The Leftover)?

Can I Baked The Chicken On Gas Or Induction Oven?
Yes you can prepare the chicken on induction or gas oven; but, in this case you can’t make one pan honey balsamic chicken, & especially you can’t get crispy honey chicken drumsticks. Other problem you can face, it contain honey (sugar element), that burn the chicken. If you are not tossing the chicken continuously after few minutes. But, if you are preparing the chicken in slow cooking procedure ( 200 F ) without veggies, then it’s fine you can make it.
