Roasted Chicken Breasts with Caramelized Shallots

You can’t ever go wrong with caramelized onions especially SHALLOTS!! They’re so good. This recipe takes very little prep time and is ready in approximately 20 minutes. It’s a great recipe for one of those busy week nights. 


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 large shallots, peeled and diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 thick chicken breasts (make sure they’re all of the same thickness for even cooking)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 
  2. In a large baking dish (I used the 13″ by 9″ glass baking dish), mix in the olive oil, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, diced shallots, salt and pepper. 
  3. Toss the chicken in the mixture. Flip them over. Make sure they’re coated in this sauce and the shallots. 
  4. Roast for about 20 minutes. Halfway through the roasting time you should flip the chicken breasts over. 
  5. When 20 minutes is up, I continue to cook the chicken breasts under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to give it a nice color. 
  6. Serve with caramelized shallots on top of each chicken breast.
