Chicken with Mushrooms in a Balsamic Cream Sauce

Chicken with Mushrooms in a Balsamic Cream SauceI had pinned a recipe for Chicken with Balsamic Cream Sauce weeks ago. I glanced at the recipe and got the ingredients from the grocer. When I went to review the recipe the night before, it was gone.  The blogger was self-publishing a cookbook, so they decided it would be a great idea to take down their recipes, but leave up the original post.  That did not help my plight one bit and I certainly wasn't going to wait and buy their cookbook.  Luckily, that same day a friendlier blogger had made Champagne Chicken, which inspired me to create my own recipe for Chicken in a Balsamic Cream Sauce.  The original recipe came from a low carb blogger, so I added flour and served it over mashed potatoes...seemed like the right thing to do.
Chicken with Mushrooms in a Balsamic Cream Sauce

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
½ white onion, sliced
1 pound baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
½ cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup heavy cream

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, set aside. Add the olive oil to a large sauté pan and heat over medium-high. Brown the chicken on both sides, remove to a plate. Add the butter to the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onions, mushrooms and flour; sauté until caramelized, about five minutes. Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth and vinegar; add the red pepper flakes. Stir in the cream. Return the chicken back into the pan, cover and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

Yours is probably better anyway. Everything is better with mashed potatoes.

Your chicken has turned out pretty well.

That has happened to me few times, when recipes I am planning to make disappear :/
