Directions

  1. Place the chicken breast in a plastic bag and pound thin with a mallet.

  2. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet.

  3. Dredge the chicken in flour and coat it on both sides. Add the chicken to the pan and sauté 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

  4. Melt the margarine in the pan. Add the mushrooms and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan and bring it to a boil to reduce the liquid.

    I'm a novice cook. If I replace the flour with spices, will it ruin this recipe? Any suggestions?

    Was easy to follow and very good. I added a little cornstarch to make it a bit thicker. My husband really like it.

    Sam, I am sorry, but you are mistaken! Mushrooms do have nutritional value. Please read further!!

    Easy and delicious! Followed this recipe step by and step and everything turned out as expected.

    This was a great dish! I like mushrooms, and since there is no nutritional value to mushrooms, I quartered them and next time I will add a lot more.

    Sounds great and will try this week- instead of the Balsamic Vinegar-( as a Greek)- use fresh Lemons toward the end. It will replace the vinegar- I also use lemons on my salads in lew of vinegar- refreshing!!
