Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other night, I just had a craving for something sweet and decided to go for classic chocolate chip cookies. As you can probably tell from this blog, I don't repeat recipes often, so here's some of the best chocolate chip cookies I've made yet!

Chicken with Balsamic Onions and Mushrooms

Balsamic-anything is my latest obsession. I just love the flavor and goodness it brings. Balsamic chicken with onions is one of the easiest things that will definitely get made over and over again!

Chicken with Balsamic Onions and Mushrooms-adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray
Total Time: 30 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Seasoned salt and pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
In a large skillet, heat two tablespoons oil over medium high heat. Season the chicken to taste and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

In the same skillet, heat additional tablespoon oil over medium heat. Stir in the onions, mushrooms and vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to caramelize-about 15 minutes. Towards the end, stir in 1/4 cup water and scrape any browned bits. Serve onion mixture over chicken.
