Creamy Balsamic Dressing


  • Make the sauce. Place all ingredients in high powered Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  • Make the chicken skillet. Add oil to a large sauté pan and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Add onion and salt and pepper and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add chicken and garlic and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until chicken is browned on the outside. 
  • Add peppers and sauté for 2-3 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add Brussel sprouts, kale, and mushrooms and sauté for 2-3 minutes until softened. Pour in creamy balsamic and salt and pepper, stir to combine, and cook for another minute until warmed through. Stir in fresh basil and enjoy!
