Roast Chicken with Carmelized Shallots

I’m always on the look out for good chicken recipes that I can whip up on a weeknight.  And, I’m always drawn to recipes that have sauces, or other components, that I can assemble the night before so I can cut down my pre-dinner prep time!  I found this recipe in “the pile”.  I must have printed it from a website or blog, but I don’t know where — for some reason, the site didn’t print.  Maybe I cut and pasted?  Oh well.

Is It a Keeper?

This was pretty good!  Lots of flavor and definitely easy enough.  I love using shallots.  They give a great mild, onion flavor.  And the soy sauce and vinegar created a great sauce — perfect for serving with brown rice!  It was a lot like my Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Bell Pepper recipe.  And, I LOVE that recipe!

I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and it turned out fine.  I did end up cutting the cooking time down by about 10 minutes.    I tend to cook with my nose — it always tells me when things are done before the timer goes off.   I just kept  an eye (or nose!) on it and used my meat thermometer to make sure I didn’t over do it.

I’ll definitely be making this recipe again!

    1. This looks sooooooo yummy! I am always trying to find new chicken recipes too ~ hubby says he doesn’t really like chicken that often, but we all know that it is much better for him than too much red meat, right??!! I’m a new follower!
