Number of Servings: 2


    1 cup sliced mushrooms (about 4 oz.)
    1-2 T olive oil
    2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (8 oz)
    2 T 100% whole wheat flour
    1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
    1/3 cup chicken stock or canned chicken broth
    2 T Balsamic vinegar
    1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
    1/2 tsp. garlic puree



Clean mushrooms and slice in thick slices. Heat a little of the olive oil in heavy frying pan and saute mushrooms 4-5 minutes, until starting to slightly brown.

While mushrooms brown, trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken breasts, then pound chicken until it is about 3/8 inch thick. (I put chicken in a small, heavy duty ziploc bag and use a rolling pin or meat mallet to pound one chicken breast at a time.)

Mix flour and poultry seasoning on a plate. Remove mushrooms from frying pan and put in small bowl. Add a bit more olive oil to pan and heat. Coat each chicken breast in a very thin layer of flour/poultry seasoning mixture, then add to pan. Saute over medium heat until quite brown on each side, about 6-7 minutes total. While chicken cooks, combine balsamic vinegar, Dijon, and garlic puree.

When chicken is browned on both sides and done, remove from pan and put on serving plate. Add chicken stock to hot pan and deglaze, scraping browned bits off the bottom. Cook 1-2 minutes, until stock is slightly reduced. Add balsamic vinegar mixture, and mushrooms, cook 1-2 minutes more. Pour over chicken and serve immediately.

    THIS WAS FANTASTIC! Made this tonight for dinner and it was amazing. I used a half can of broth and more balsamic as well as 8 oz's of mushrooms instead of the original recipe.

    Will absolutely be making again!!! - 1/7/13

  • We loved this! I did use 8 oz of mushrooms and since we are watching our portion sizes I use one breast sliced down the middle for 2 servings. Just pound it slightly and wall-la cutlets! I also used white balsamic. It's lighter flavor is preferred by my husband. Thanks for sharing this recipe! - 1/28/14

  • Not sure if I did something wrong or if the balsamic vinegar is just not my thing, but I didn't really like it. The chicken was great, once I scraped the sauce off. - 4/2/12

  • My DH (who is not yet a Sparker) said this was a "do it againer". And he made it! Very easy, nice tangy taste combination of balsamic and dijon. He also added 1/4 of a red onion, sliced when cooking the mushrooms. - 3/30/11
