Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus

I pinned this recipe from Maggie's Bites and oh my goodness, it was GOOD!!!  It is so light, but full of flavor at the same time.  Her website says this dish only has 335 calories, so if you are watching your calorie intake, and want a seriously yummy dinner, try this!!  
Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bunch fresh asparagus
1 pint grape tomatoes
4 ounces mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup, plus 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup, plus 1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
Combine 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic powder and pepper in a ziploc bag.  Add in chicken breasts and marinate for 30 minutes to overnight.  After marinating, grill chicken.  

Preheat oven to 400.  Line a cookie sheet with foil, wash and break off rough ends of asparagus and place on cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and bake for 8-10 minutes until tender.

In a pan, place sliced grape tomatoes with 1 tsp olive oil and 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar.  Cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes start to get soft.

Place chicken and asparagus on a dish, top with tomatoes and mozzarella, and drizzle with the extra balsamic mixture from the tomatoes. Look how good this looks:
Seriously, delicious!  So light and fresh and full of flavor!!  Enjoy!  :)
