My husband and I went through a phaze where we wanted chicken all the time! I had gone to the farmers market and bought these beautiful aged Balsamic Vinagers, and one day I had an idea to make chicken in balsamic and add cheese and that day all we had was blue cheese. I added mushroom in the sauce and put it all on top of spinach.
