Honey Balsamic Chicken

 Honey Balsamic Chicken
This is a recipe I adapted from a cookbook that featured quick and easy recipes. I adjusted the seasonings somewhat and added a bit more honey to better suit my tastes.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil


  • Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt and pepper. In a large skillet over
  • medium heat, cook chicken in oil for 4-7 minutes on each side or
  • until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  • Add the vinegar, honey and basil to the same skillet; cook and stir
  • for 1 minute. Return chicken to the pan; heat through, turning to
  • coat with glaze. Yield: 2 servings.
