Mushroom Chicken Breast Recipe with Balsamic and Rosemary
Chicken breast recipes can be so hard make right! Sometimes the breasts turn out so dry and without much flavor. So when Walmart sent over an awesome bundle of new products available on store shelves, I immediately wanted to try a Mushroom Chicken Breast Recipe with Balsamic and Rosemary.
As a Walmart Mom, this easy chicken breast dinner recipe is sponsored by them. Enjoy!
One of the products in our bundles this month had the delicious balsamic vinaigrette dressing from Panera Bread. There were some really great products, including really cool pasta that the kids loved. Ultimately though, I was drawn to Panera Bread’s Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. It has no artificial preservatives or flavors and is low sodium. But most importantly, this dressing is SO good!
Since it’s a dressing – as opposed to just balsamic vinegar – this product really punched up the flavor of my chicken breasts and made this weeknight dinner very simple and quick to make!
Mushroom Chicken Breast with Balsamic and Rosemary
This is a one pan, super simple weeknight chicken breast recipe that will not disappoint. The rich balsamic flavor adds so much sweetness and depth, even the pickiest eater will love it! What you’ll need to make this simple and flavorful chicken breast recipe:
6 chicken breasts, skinless/boneless
1 lb of mushrooms, chopped
6-8 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons rosemary, chopped
1 bottle Panera Bread Balsamic Vineargarette
2 tabelspoons butter
2 tablespoons EVOO
Salt/pepper to taste
To start, season chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste and melt butter in a frying pan. Add chicken to pan and sear until golden brown on the outside but not cooked. Remove from pan and add EVOO to pan, along with mushrooms and sautee until reduced. Add garlic, rosemary and cook for a few minutes before returning the chicken breasts to the pan. Add the entire bottle of Panera Bread Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing to the pan, making sure to scrape the bottom for yummy bits of flavor. Cook on low to medium heat for about 10 minutes longer, or until the sauce has reduced a bit and the chicken is cooked all the way through.
I poured the entire bottle of balsamic dressing into the chicken, but you may not want that much sauce, although I’m not sure why. This recipe was easy to make, in ONE PAN, and was full of flavor that my entire family enjoyed. I served it with rice to soak up the sauce and a light salad and everyone agreed: this chicken breast recipe is a keeper!
