Creamy Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms is a one-skillet dish that's deeply satisfying and nourishing. Caramelized onions add sweetness, mushrooms add umami, and balsamic vinegar adds a sweet, slightly tangy flavor. And underneath this wonderfully rich fall sauce awaits a perfectly browned, succulent, boneless chicken breast.
