    Quick and easy recipe; also great for low-fat options. Includes a variation of veggies (fresh or frozen), carbohydrates, and lean meat. A must-have recipe for those nights after work when cooking seems overbearing and exhausting. :)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sprinkle a desired amount of garlic powder, salt, and pepper over the chicken breasts. Then place them in a deep baking dish.
    2. 2
      Add balsamic vinaigrette to dish, until chicken breasts are covered.
    3. 3
      Cover and refrigerate for 30-45 mins and allow to marinate. (The longer it refrigerates, the better the flavor!)
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350°F When chicken is done marinating, place the baking dish, uncovered, in oven to bake for 30-45 minutes (until chicken is cooked through). Be careful not to overcook, as chicken can become tough and dry.
