Honey Balsamic Chicken is another easy, one pan chicken recipe that is moist and tender, prepared with a really good sauce, plus vegetables.
HOW TO PREPARE HONEY BALSAMIC CHICKEN BREAST
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Add chicken breasts to the skillet and cook about 7 minutes, or until you can easily flip it over. Turn chicken over; reduce heat to medium, and cook 6 more minutes or until done.
In the meantime prepare the HONEY BALSAMIC SAUCE
- In a mixing bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, honey, garlic, and seasonings.
Add half of the sauce to the chicken; turn chicken to coat and remove from skillet.
VEGETABLES THAT GO WELL WITH CHICKEN DINNERS
- Add broccoli and tomatoes to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Remove from skillet.
- Add the rest of the sauce to the skillet and cook for a minute, scraping up all the browned bits from the bottom of skillet.
At this point, you can either add the chicken and veggies back into the skillet and turn to coat, OR, grab the skillet and pour the sauce over the chicken and veggies.
If you’re looking for a heartier meal, you can easily pair this honey balsamic chicken recipe with a side of quinoa or brown rice.
