Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 large garlic clove crushed
  • 1 pound chicken breast (4 4-ounce pieces, pressed thin*), uncooked
  • 2 cup mushrooms halved or sliced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme


  • Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a large skillet.
  • In a medium bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar, mustard, and garlic. Add chicken and turn to coat.
  • Transfer chicken and marinade to skillet. Saute chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.
  • Heat remaining teaspoon of oil of skillet. Saute mushrooms for one minute. Add broth, thyme, and remaining tablespoon of vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are deep brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve chicken topped with mushrooms.


*If your chicken breasts are very thick, cut them in half lengthwise. They cook quicker and turn out much juicier if they are thinner.
