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.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
2 Tbsp butter
6 oz onion or shallot ( thinly sliced )
