Balsamic Chicken Mushroom Onion Sandwich
Here is a quick 20 minute healthy meal for you! There is no need to eat frozen dinner packages that don't fill you up to save time. This is a very quick and easy meal that will satisfy without hurting your waistline. I made these friday night after long day at work followed by an intense spinning class. Simple quick easy and satisfying!
Balsamic chicken sandwich with mushrooms and onions (serves 2)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
black pepper to taste
1/2 container sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms
1/2 medium sweet onion (chopped)
2 whole wheat rolls
romaine lettuce leaves
Place chicken in a bowl or bag and piece a few times with a fork. Pour 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and black pepper to taste over the chicken and set aside while grill heats up. I don't have an outdoor grill so I used my handy George Forman grill but you can easily cook the chicken outside on your grill.
While grill is heating, lightly spray a pan and start sauteing chopped onion. Once brown add mushrooms along with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and black pepper to taste, cook until vinegar is reduced to a thick sauce.
Once grill is hot, cook chicken for 7 minutes or until done. (don't over cook they get chewy and dry BLEH)
Cut rolls and place a chicken breast along with a helping of the onion/mushroom mixture and top with a lettuce leaf and the top of the roll.
Corn on the cob
(a great summer side any night of the week!)
4 ears of corn husks removed and silk cleaned off
pot of water
Fill a pot with 3-4 inches of water (enough water to cover the corn ears) set the stove on high and bring to a boil.
Place corn into the water and let boil 4-5 minutes, using a spoon make sure to rotate them in the water bath so all sides cook.
Remove from water and let cool. (Again over cooking will leave the corn soggy and bland)
Top with some pepper, red hot, or whatever else floats your boat.
