This always reminds me of an aromatic day in Eze, France.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 2 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 3 large cloves garlic, chopped

  • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded flat

  • cup chicken stock

  • 1 large shallot, chopped

  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, chopped

  • cup chicken stock

  • ¼ teaspoon herbes de Provence, crumbled

  • 1 ½ teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 slices provolone cheese, halved


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Mix 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic in a bowl and stir chicken breast halves into the mixture to coat. Transfer chicken with marinade into the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.

  2. Pour 1/3 cup chicken stock into skillet and stir to dissolve browned bits of food from the skillet. Cook and stir shallot and mushrooms until mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1/3 cup chicken stock, herbes de Provence, and 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are deep brown in color, about 2 minutes.

  3. Return chicken breasts to pan and top each with 1/2 slice of provolone cheese. Cover skillet and let cheese melt; serve with mushrooms.
