Whole30 Balsamic Mushroom Chicken

I was craving something Italian, Whole30, Easy and Quick and this recipe was born! 

 

Ingredients

  • -2 chicken breasts (flatten with a meat hammer)
  • -1 container white mushrooms
  • -1 white onion chopped
  • -avocado oil or EVOO
  • -Ghee
  • -¾ cup compliant broth (I used trader joes veggie broth cause its about a buck cheaper than chicken broth haha)
  • -⅓ cup balsamic vinaigrette (I used Pompeian cause its free of sulfites and just plain awesome)
  • -1 tsp thyme
  • -1 tsp oregano
  • -1 tsp basil
  • -1 tsp salt
  • -1 tsp pepper
  • -1 tbsp minced garlic (I use trader joes minced garlic cause its so convenient), but you can easily use 4-6 cloves of fresh garlic

 

  1. Start by heating your pain with oil. Next saute your onions until brown.
  2. Now take the chicken, salt and pepper it, and use a meat hammer to flatten it out a bit. IMYO helps the chicken cook a little faster and more evenly.
  3. Next place the chicken in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until brown.
  4. Now add the chopped mushrooms, garlic, broth, spices and balsamic vinagrette and let it simmer for about another 10 minutes.
  5. Add in about 1 tsbp ghee to thicken the balsamic broth mixture. 
  6. Now serve and eat!

Hi my name is Gabby, 26 and I work full-time as an accountant and I am in graduate school for my MBA part time. I have always been one busy bee, even before graduate school. Post-undergrad, I worked at a public accounting firm AND was studying for my CPA. My first year post grad, working crazy hours and trying to pass a beast of exam, took a toll on my body, my mental capacity and brain power. I started the Whole30 journey in January 2016 and fell in love with how I felt. But let me tell you it took some adjustments like setting aside time to meal prep and realizing I may not be able to a make a certain recipe because I just don't have the time due to studying or busy season. A lot has changed since then, I've switched jobs and passed my exam, but one thing stays consistent...I stilllove to cook efficiently. I've yearned all my life to have that "I am sexy" confidence and with healthy eating and exercise, I'm getting there. I started this blog to help others who are in a similar position as me, who want to become the best version of themselves but with realistic expectations. For the busy moms, for the students, and for overworked accountant, these are my stories and recipes on how to live a simple easy whole life.
