This is really good using the chx broth. I added it to my "Make often file" Simple to make as well.
I followed the recipe exactly for the chicken and marinade portion of the recipe and doubled the broth and balsamic I added on the mushrooms. It was awesome. My husband and two year old enjoyed it too! Added some S & P and served with roasted asparagus. After removing the chicken from my nonstick skillet (just before adding the mushrooms) I had some flavorful bits that I loosened up with a bit of water. My initial marinade had all cooked up. I will make this again.
Loved this quick and flavorful recipe! As per other reviewers' suggestions, I sliced each breast rather than pound them and doubled the sauce. I used a mixture of button mushrooms, brown mushrooms and shitaki mushrooms, all sliced. I added 15 green olives sliced in half and sprinkled the sauce with red pepper flakes. Next time I will add rosemary -- just because I love rosemary and I think it will compliment the other flavors. Simple and delicious!
