    crazycookinmama's Note:

    This is from a cookbook club that I used to belong to years ago, I pulled out the binder, dusted it off, and looked for a chicken recipe. This is what I found, and it's picky 3 year old even ate it!

    1. 1
      In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute until softened, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Cover and remove from heat; set aside.
    2. 2
      Rinse chicken breast halves under cold water; pat dry with paper towels. On a cutting board, cut each piece in half. Place between sheets of waxed paper; using a rolling pin, pound and roll chicken to 1/4 inch thickness.
    3. 3
      In a bowl, combine flour, sage, salt and pepper. Dredge chicken pieces in the mixture, shaking off excess.
    4. 4
      In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook chicken pieces, 4 or 5 at a time, until cooked through and lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side; add additional oil and butter, if necessary. Transfer chicken to a plate.
    5. 5
      Add balsamic vinegar to the skillet; increase heat to medium-high heat and cook, stirring, to loosen any browned bits from the bottom and sides of the skillet, about 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Return chicken and pan juices to the skillet; reduce heat to low and turn medallions once or twice to baste them in the sauce.
    7. 7
      Add cooked pasta to the skillet with the vegetables, tossing to combine; warm over low heat until heated through, about 4 minutes.
    8. 8
      Transfer pasta and vegetables to a platter. Arrange the chicken medallions on the platter next to the pasta and vegetables; garnish with fresh basil leaves and lemon wedges. Serve immediately.

      Not issuing an official rating, because I didn't follow the directions in the end and don't know how that would've turned out. Instead, I made roasted garlic mashed potatoes to serve it on, I didn't cut the chicken in half (though I did remove the tenders and cook them separately), and I mixed the veggies (shallots as well as red onion) in the balsamic sauce after coating the chicken with it. Normally, I would have doubled the balsamic, but I only had 1/4 c, so I used chicken broth for extra liquid. Next time, I'll make sure I have enough vinegar. I can't say I thought this was as good as my last recipe (4000 miles away in a box), but it'll do for now. Thanks!

      My family loved this recipe. I used about 1 Tbls Balsamic vinegar and added about 3/4 cup chicken broth. I thickened the sauce. Next time I will double the sauce mixture and pour it all over the pasta. I served Baked Corn Casserole #36673, it was outstanding, but it really did not go with this meal. Next time I will make this with grilled chicken.

      Oh Man ,Oh Man, this is so DELICIOUS. What a lovely, tasty way to make chicken. I used Balasmic vinegar, making it just like the recipe stated but cut the recipe down for 2. The sage and the Vinegar gives the chicken such a yummy flavor. The chicken would be very good just served with other vegetables to cut down on the carbs. I will be making this again & again for guest. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
