Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

This Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic is a perfect dish to make with some of the balsamic vinegar that I picked up in Modena during my last trip to Italy. Modena is a city in the north of Italy which is famous for three things: Ferrari cars, Lamborghinis and balsamic vinegar. Now, I don’t care too much for fast cars, but I care a lot about balsamico!!! You won’t be surprised to hear that I made some room in my suitcase and brought a bottle home with me!

I make good use of that bottle of vinegar in this recipe which combines tender, juicy chicken breasts with mushrooms and balsamic vinegar to make a super rich sauce. You can serve this with sauté potatoes or pasta for a delicious main meal which will transport you straight to Italy!

To make my Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic, you will need the following ingredients:
