As a working mom of two, I am always searching for ways to save time in the kitchen on weeknights so I can spend more time with my family. In addition, as a registered dietitian, I am always searching for easy, healthy recipes my whole family will enjoy.

This honey, balsamic ground chicken dish fits both of those criteria. It is a perfect meal for busy families who are trying to live a healthy lifestyle. With only 285 calories, 6g fat, 13g carbs, and 26g protein, this meal can be part of any healthy diet and will be sure to satisfy the whole family.

The entire dish is prepared in one pan, making for an easy clean up on busy weeknights.

The balsamic, honey sauce brings out a tangy, but sweet flavor the entire family will love. Simmering the honey balsamic sauce with the chicken and brussels allows the sauce to thicken and flavors come together.

This lean, healthy meal is perfect paired with roasted sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes or even riced or mashed cauliflower for a low carb choice. Sprinkle with a little feta cheese for added flavor.
