Diabetic Recipe: Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms

Makes 4 servings 


  • 1lb chicken breasts, boneless & skinless 
  • 10 oz sliced mushrooms (your choice)
  • ½ cup chicken broth, fat-free & low sodium
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, trans-fat-free
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


1. Pound the chicken thin using a mallet.

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

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.

5. Add the chicken broth to the pan and simmer 2 more minutes. Add the chicken breast back to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
