Balsamic Chicken Pomodoro

Tonight was one of those nights where I changed a recipe so much that it barely resembles the recipe I began with. The original recipe for healthy chicken pomodoro sounded great! So I start cooking and realize my pepper went bad, I am out of parmesan cheese (which is shocking on many levels!), I don't have red wine... yikes, this is a mess. But, I substituted a lot of ingredients and the end result was pretty good. John loved the chicken, I loved the pasta (no surprise there!) so overall very good.

I'm going to write what I did below, but to see the original click the link above!

1/2 box of pasta
2 tsp Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning
2 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 can of diced tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

1- Cook the pasta according to directions, set aside when finished.

2- In a skillet, heat olive oil and garlic for about 2 minutes. Coat chicken in the Mrs. Dash seasoning. Lay the chicken in the oil and cook until finished. Remove chicken, slice into strips, and set aside.

3- Pour the can of tomatoes into the skillet. Add balsamic vinegar. Allow the two to cook together on low for about 20 minutes. Toss pasta into the tomatoes, top with the chicken.


  1. Looks great! I love balsamic vinegar.

  2. Looks wonderful and balsamic vinegar is one of my fave ingredients to work with!
