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.
4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (I love this Honey Balsamic from Honey Ridge Farms)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 chopped garlic cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Melt the butter over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
Add the chicken to the pan.
Cook the chicken until both sides are brown and the chicken is cooked through. It is about 6 to 7 minutes on each side. Take the chicken out of the pan, and put on a plate and cover with foil.
Add the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and honey to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, the sauce will thicken. Use a spatula to get the browned bits off of the bottom of the pan.
Slice the chicken on a bias, and spoon the pan sauce over the top. I served mine with some orzo tossed with homemade pesto sauce and Parmesan cheese.
