Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 oz each)
  • 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pound whole mushrooms, washed and quartered
  • 1/2 small purple onion, sliced (2 oz)

Balsamic Dressing

  • 1/4 cup avocado or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Sukrin :1 (Swerve Granulated, or sugar if not low carb)
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 pinch each of salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Gently pound the chicken with the flat side of a meat mallet to even it out a little. (I place mine in a plastic bag to do this.) Place the chicken breasts in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Pour the tbsp of oil over the chicken and oil both sides of each breast. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Wash the mushrooms and cut them into quarters. Thinly slice the onion. Place the mushrooms and onions in a small bowl. Measure the ingredients for the balsamic dressing in a small jar and shake to combine. Pour the dressing over the mushrooms and onions and toss to coat. 
  • Place the chicken in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the pan around the chicken and cook for 20 - 30 minutes more. 

Notes

I generally put the chicken in the oven while I make the balsamic dressing and cut the mushrooms and onions. It takes me roughly 10 minutes and then I add the mushrooms to the baking dish with the chicken.
