Balsamic Chicken


This made the kitchen smell incredible.  It was easy to make and quite tasty.  I served the chicken with brown rice.

Balsamic Chicken
Finding Joy In My Kitchen

2 medium chicken breasts
1 T olive oil
3 T balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
3/4 C chicken broth
1 tsp. basil

Begin my cooking the chicken in a large skillet with 1 T olive oil and garlic.  Cook roughly 6 minutes each side, until browned and fairly well cooked.

When chicken is just about done, add in the mushrooms and saute them until they cook off much of their liquid.

Add the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar and basil.

Cover, and simmer the mixture for 15ish minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and has reached 180 degrees.  The sauce will thicken as you cook it too, yielding a really nice sauce.
