  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into pieces

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more as needed


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Mix balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, water, and brown sugar together in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  3. Add mushrooms and onion to the skillet, adding more oil as needed. Cook over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet and pour balsamic glaze on top. Reduce heat to low and let simmer gently until sauce thickens slightly and chicken is warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes.
