Balsamic Basil Chicken with Summer Squash

Balsamic Basil Chicken with Summer SquashI was perusing Pinterest the other day, and found this recipe from Shelly Heim for Balsamic Vinegar Chicken. It looked so good, I had to try it. I was all set to start cooking, and realized that the chilly weather a couple of nights ago killed my basil, so I had to make some major adjustments to the recipe method. I also changed out the mushrooms with the summer squash from our box.
