honey garlic balsamic chicken recipe

Everyone needs a meal that they can have on the table in 30 minutes that is healthy, easy, and delicious.  This meal is on the table in less than a half an hour and I can bet that you have all of the ingredients that you need in your pantry right now.  Not only is this meal easy to prepare, it has a ton of flavor and everyone in my house loves it.  That is no easy feat.  This Honey Garlic Balsamic Chicken will become your go-to weeknight dinner.  I serve mine with a simple orzo pasta tossed with a little homemade pesto and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.  If I am really ambitious, I would add a salad.  My spinach salad is my all-time favorite and would be perfect with this chicken.

    I made this recipe the other night and it was wonderful! I”m thinking about trying this sauce with a steak as well. Should I modify the recipe with beef broth instead of chicken broth?

  2. Victoria Levi says:

    This recipe looks de-lish! Is it going to make a huge difference if I don’t use butter? My husband eats kosher :(

    I love this dish! I made it last summer with some yellow grape tomatoes halved and cooked in the balsamic mixture. Tonight I had all the ingredients on hand so I made it for dinner. It was just as delicious as I remember it being last year and once again super easy! Thank you for a classic!

    I’m new to cooking and always looking for quick easy recipes. Especially anything with chicken breasts. This was so good and so easy. I didn’t have lemon juice but it still came out good. The only thing I was confused about was whether to put the chicken back in the pan. I cut into the chicken and noticed it was still a little under cooked. So I put it back in the pan with the sauce to make it cook a little longer and to soak up the juices! Will def make this again!

      I am glad that you liked it. I don’t remember if I added it back to the pan. I don’t think that it really matters.

  8. Lisa says:

    Do you think this is something that could be made & then frozen? I do a lot of freezer cooking for my family & this recipe sounds tasty! Would it work to freeze the sauce you think?

    Was searching for a quick and tasty recipe to make for dinner (30-45 minutes is about all I can spare with a 3 year old and a 9 month old) and this sounds perfect! Can’t wait to make this tonight!

    Very tasty – thank you! My sauce did not thicken (or brown at all) though – not sure why.

  13. Kaelen says:

    This was delicious! I made it with couscous and green beans. Thanks!

  14. Molly says:

    This is SO good!! My boyfriend asks for this all the time because I serve it with baked broccoli, and he swears it’s like a beef and broccoli dish from our Chinese restaurant…..but with chicken….and a bit healthier ;) Love it!

    This recipe looks delicious, I’m curious as to how many it serves though?
