You'll love an entrée that can be made in just 20 minutes and requires just 8 ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand. The chicken breasts are flavored with balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and crushed garlic. Then the mushrooms are cooked down in a savory mixture of chicken broth, crumbled thyme, and yes, more balsamic vinegar. Serve with a mixed green salad or blanched green veggies alongside to round out the meal as a delicious dinner. For a different flair, you can substitute dry white wine for the chicken broth, then sprinkle on a few spoonfuls of chopped sun-dried tomatoes with the mushrooms.
