➔ To make this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:


▢500g / 1 lb chicken breast , boneless and skinless (2 pieces)

▢Salt and pepper

▢1/4 cup flour (Note 1)

▢3 1/2 tbsp (50g) unsalted butter (or 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil)

▢2 garlic cloves , minced

▢1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or white or other clear vinegar)

▢1 tbsp soy sauce , light or all purpose (Note 2)

▢1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)


➔ Method :


Step 1:

Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create 4 steaks in total. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.


Step 2:

Place flour in a shallow dish. Coat chicken in flour and shake off excess.


Step 3:

Melt most of the butter in a large skillet over high heat – hold back about 1 tsp for later.


Step 4:

Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until golden. Turn and cook the other side for 1 minute.


Step 5:

Turn heat down slightly to medium high.

Make a bit of room in the pan and add garlic and top with remaining dab of butter.



Step 6:

Stir garlic briefly once butter melts.


Step 7:

Add vinegar, soy sauce and honey. Stir / shake pan to combine. Bring sauce to simmer, then simmer for 1 minute or until slightly thickened.


Step 8:

Turn chicken to coat in sauce. If the sauce gets too thick, add a touch of water and stir.


Step 9:

Remove from stove immediately. Place chicken on plates and drizzle over remaining sauce.


➔ Tips:


1— To make the chicken extra flavorful, marinate it in the honey-garlic sauce for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours in the fridge, before baking.


2— If you want a thicker sauce, you can whisk in a teaspoon of cornstarch to the sauce mixture before pouring it over the chicken.


3— To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free soy sauce and ketchup.


4— You can also grill the chicken breasts instead of baking them. Simply preheat your grill to medium-high heat and grill the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.



➔ Conclusion:


This honey garlic chicken breast recipe is a simple yet delicious way to elevate your chicken dinner game.
