What's for dinner?

It's been a while since I blogged about a meal. I'm still cooking but I've just been making things on the regular rotation - nothing blog worthy. So, I'm looking for something amazing to make this weekend.

Can you help, dear reader? Will you link me to something amazing to make? Shellfish is out but pretty much anything else goes!

I thank you in advance!

I just made this last night and it was SO tasty.

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp. butter
1 shallot (minced) *I substituted reg. onion*
2 large cloves of garlic (minced)
3/4 cup chicken broth *I used chicken stock*
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sliced basil leaves *I used about a teaspoon or so of dried basil - just taste test it if you don't have fresh*

optional: Baby bella mushrooms

Clean chicken, pat dry and season with salt and pepper.

Melt 1 tbsp. butter and EVOO in skillet on medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts until done, (amount of time depends on thickness). Remove from pan and keep warm.

Add shallots and garlic to pan in chicken juice and sautee for 1 minute. Add balsamic vinegar and scrape up brown bits with a wooden spoon.

Add chicken broth, and reduce until the mixture is reduced by half. *When it was close to being done reducing, I threw in some baby bella mushrooms as well but you def. don't have to* Remove from heat and add sliced basil and another tbsp. of butter.

Pour over chicken and enjoy!!
