Garlic, honey, & balsamic chicken

This recipe is relatively quick and easy...perfect in and of itself...but the flavor is wonderful and the garlic/balsamic aroma will tease your taste buds!

Once you gather the ingredients, the rest is a snap!!!

The store did not have any just plain boneless chicken breasts so I used the ones with rib meat.

The sauce thickens up and is so flavorful!


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons honey

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Melt butter in large pan (over medium/high heat); add olive oil and finally add the chicken breasts. Cook on both sides until thoroughly cooked. Remove chicken and place on plate and cover with foil.

Add chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and honey to pan that you cooked the chicken in. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until sauce thickens, be sure to stir in the browned bits in the bottom of pan.

Remove foil from chicken and spread/pour sauce over all. Garnish with a little parsley and serve.
