Balsamic Vinegar Chicken with whole wheat pasta + Giveaway

There was this Italian restaurant near my place that serve fantastic balsamic vinegar.  I love to dip my bread in it.  Unfortunately it has since closed down.

Since I have tried Adobo chicken and love it, I reckon Balsamic Vinegar Chicken will just be as nice.  

Thus decided to cook Balsamic Vinegar Chicken with Whole Wheat Pasta.  An easy one dish meal for this exam period.  Can't wait for it to end.

Please hop over to here for the give away

What you need:
Serve 4

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 2
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 trays of fresh mushrooms, sliced
6 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp olive oil
8 cloves garlic, crushed slightly
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¾ cup water
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp butter

400g pasta


Bring a pot of water to boil and drizzle a little oil and a little salt, add in the pasta.  Cook according to the manufacturer’s instruction.   

Season the chicken with a salt and pepper.

Season the flour with another 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp pepper, mix well and coat the chicken breasts evenly.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat and sear the chicken until it is nicely browned on all sides.  Remove.

Add the garlic and then mushroom with the remaining oil.  Sautee until mushroom soften.

Return chicken breasts to the pan.

Add the vinegar, broth and bay leaf.

Cover and let it simmer over medium low heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Remove the chicken from the pan. Set aside.

Continue simmering the sauce, uncovered, on medium high heat for about 7 minutes.

Melt in the butter and discard the bay leaf.

Pour this mushroom sauce mixture over the chicken and serve with the pasta.

  1. Is bay leaves necessary? Can I omit it or replace with others herbs if I do not have it?
    Going to try this too.

    1. Bay leave infused into the vinegar very well, am not sure whether rosemary or other herbs will. If you can try and let me know the outcome. Might turn out even better.
