Chicken Balsamic

Note: There is an updated, and I think better, recipe as Chicken Balsamic #2.

This is just a simple chicken dish that seems appropriate for a cold evening.

2 chicken breasts
8 oz. chicken stock
mushrooms, sliced
shallot, minced
balsamic vinegar

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Add olive oil to a hot sauté pan medium-high heat. Sear one side of the chicken breast. Flip the chicken over and add the shallot.

Add the mushrooms.

Heat, uncovered, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160°F, about 10-15 minutes. Remove the chicken.

Reduce the sauce. Serve. Pictured with garlic mashed potatoes.
