Chicken can be pretty boring after awhile. This recipe is full of flavor though! If you like balsamic vinegar you will love this recipe!
Balsamic Chicken & Mushrooms
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Dash salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 oz. white mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 bay leaf
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil and garlic in a skillet over medium high heat. Saute the chicken for 3 minutes or until it is nicely browned on one side.
Turn the chicken breasts and scatter the mushrooms over the top. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add the vinegar, broth and bay leaf. Cover tightly and simmer over medium low heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and cover with foil and set aside. Continue simmering the sauce, uncovered, over medium high heat for about 7 minutes or until reduced. Discard the bay leaf. Pour this mushroom sauce mixture over the chicken and serve.
- Serve over whole wheat pasta or with mashed potatoes.
- If the sauce is too thin after reducing, add a little bit of corn starch to thicken.
