Balsamic-Thyme Chicken with Roasted Asparagus

Balsamic Thyme MarinadeThis recipe is part of my 21 Paleo Marinades. It’s quite a flavorful chicken marinade and very accessible. That is something I look for in my marinades.

I’ll admit, I have a stocked spice cabinet and pantry. But I’m still not into the crazy off-the-wall ingredients, which require six trips to the store.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 Tbsp Balsamic
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp dried thyme


In a small bowl, combine the ingredients. Place chicken breasts in large storage bag and pour marinade over chicken.

Marinate for 30 minutes to 4 hours. (I marinated in only 30 minutes and there was a ton of flavor!)

Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or grill to done. Serve with roasted vegetables, such as asparagus.
