Balsamic Roasted Chicken Breast (Paleo + Whole30)

Most weekends, shredded chicken is on my meal prep to use in my weekly lunches.  I often use a simple marinade and change up the flavor by using a different dressing and mix-ins each day of the week.  

When I am ready to really change it up, slow roasting chicken in rich and tangy balsamic vinegar is one of my favorite ways to do it.  This week’s meal prep includes this tasty balsamic roasted chicken. You can use this chicken in a salad, mix it in with veggies, or enjoy it on it’s own- it’s extremely easy to do and packs a ton of flavor!
