Balsamic glazed chicken

Hi friends,

Happy Tuesday!! I am having quite the productive week over here 😀 and things are going well! Here is one of our favourite recipes and quite the staple in our home. It is easy, quick and effortless.

“Balsamic glazed chicken with mushrooms”

Ingredients (for 2)

4 small chicken (or turkey) breasts

1 small can of mushrooms (or about a handful fresh ones)

2 tbs olive oil

5 tbs balsamic vinegar

1 tbs (low sodium) soya sauce

1 1/2 tbs honey

1 tsp BBQ sauce

1/2 tsp dry basil leaves

1/2 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

Place the chicken breasts in a non-stick pan (no grease is necessary) and fry until they are starting to turn golden brown on the outside (both sides).

Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and make sure that they are blended into a smooth mixture (especially the honey).

Then pour the mixture over the chicken in the pan, add mushrooms and garlic, stir and let it simmer over medium heat. Turn chicken breasts at least once so the glazing will cover both sides. After about 8-10 minutes the mixture should start to thicken. When the sauce isn’t runny anymore it is ready 🙂 – Note: the chicken will still be white on the inside but it should not be dry at all!

Serve with rice or mash (sweet 😉 ) potatoes, make sure you pour the remainng glazing/mushrooms over your chicken and … Enjoy 😀
