Creamy Balsamic Chicken

Jump to Recipe

Chicken and pasta is a great combination. For this dish, I decided to go with the delicious tang of balsamic vinegar. Creamy Balsamic Chicken with parmesan garlic pasta is going to bet a hit in your home.

Creamy Balsamic Chicken

You don’t have to serve this with the pasta – you could serve it over rice or even roasted potatoes. If you are keto – try it over some whipped or roasted cauliflower. This pasta recipe could also be used with a ton of other proteins – it would be delicious with a nice steak or pork chop. You could also use the balsamic sauce over a steak or pork chop as well.

One note of caution – you will need to use balsamic VINEGAR not VINEGARETTE. The vinaigrette or salad dressing versions are not going to mix into the sauce as well (they usually have additional oil as well as other seasoning and flavors). If you are concerned with the strength of the vinegar flavor, you could decrease the amount you add to the sauce or increase the amount of cream until you get the desired taste.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
