Just because you have a busy schedule you don’t have to settle for boring dinners.  This Skillet Balsamic Chicken is anything but boring.  And, it’s ready in under 30 minutes so it’s perfect for busy days.

Boneless, skinless chicken breast is a staple in my house.  I buy the thin cutlets that are already trimmed of all fat from my butcher.

These cutlets are one of my secret weapons for quick dinners.  I always have some in the freezer, ready for a quick meal.They thaw in no time and cook up super fast.

Two of my favorite skillet chicken recipes are Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken and Honey Ginger Chicken.  Both of them are full of flavor and ready in under 30 minutes.  That’s my kind of dinner!

In keeping with the same concept, I came up with this Skillet Balsamic Chicken.  Everything is done in one skillet and ready in under 30 minutes.

This recipe is oozing with flavor from the sweet balsamic vinegar, earthy mushrooms and savory thyme.  I served it with my favorite Parmesan Orzo.  It soaked up all of the extra sauce from the chicken and was to die for!

This recipe is simple enough for a busy weeknight but elegant enough to serve to company.  It’s definitely a keeper to me!
