    A basic weeknight staple, I found this recipe on (which claims it was originally a Weight Watchers recipe). A few tweaks based on what we had in the house, and a satisfying--and not dry!--chicken dinner was born. Original recipe available here:


    • 1-2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 5-6 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
    • 4 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
    • 3-4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
    • 4 Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 1 pound total)
    • 1 1/2 to 2 cups White Mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 cup Scallions, chopped
    • 1/3 cup chicken broth


    1. In a nonstick skillet, heat 1-2 Tbsps. of oil.
    2. In a bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the vinegar, the mustard and garlic. Add the chicken and coat both sides with the mixture.
    3. Transfer the chicken and mixture to the skillet; saute until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
    4. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
    5. In the skillet, heat the chicken broth and scrape the pan
    6. Saute the scallions and mushrooms about a minute; add the remaining tablespoons of vinegar.
    7. Cook stirring until the mushrooms and are deep brown, about 2 minutes longer.
    8. Serve the chicken, topped with the mushrooms and scallions.
    9. Delicious!
