Pan-Seared Chicken with Broccolini

I've been working on cooking meals for 1 which I find difficult sometimes. Most recipes I come across are for 4 to 6 people and it can get complicated, breaking it down for 1 or 2 meals, at least in my crazy mind! 

Keep-it-simple-stupid has been my motto lately. This recipe is perfect for a dinner and a lunch. Plus, it's SO delicious! I paired it with broccolini this time just for a change but use what veggie you like. Broccoli or asparagus would work well! 


  • 2 small chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch Broccolini
  • 1 to 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar


  1. Add everything except the olive oil into a resealable bag and store in the fridge ahead of time. Mine sat for about 1 hour. 
  2. Heat olive oil in cast iron skillet over medium heat. 
  3. Add the veggies and let cook until almost tender and then add the chicken. 
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side. (temp should be @165 degrees). 
  5. Let chicken sit for a few minutes while you pour that glass of wine :) 

This recipe is 2 pts per serving (2 servings) on Weight Watchers Freestyle program. 


Note: I was cooking some other vegetables at the same time and threw those red onions in there. I love onions but you can leave them out or add them in!
