It's time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal! My secret blog assignment this month was Baking & Creating with Avril. I love that her recipes are "Nothing too fancy but always made with love and happiness!" A few of the recipes that caught my eye were her Pumpkies, Rustic Tomato Tart, and Skillet Granola. They all sound great, and the pictures that go along with Avril's recipes are mouth watering. I finally decided that this Chicken with Balsamic Mushroom Sauce just really had to be made.
Avril's recipe involved a few more steps, but I like simple, so I just cooked everything together in one skillet. (except the pasta) It turned out really good. My husband and I both really liked it. He even ranked it up alongside his favorite pasta dish from The Olive Garden - just with chicken. I'd say that is high praise.
Any leftovers heat up really well, and this is just as good, if not better, the second time. You'll want to add some reserved pasta water to your leftovers to keep the pasta from soaking up all the moisture in the sauce.
