Honey Balsamic Chicken Recipe

Honey Balsamic Chicken Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 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


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Add the vinegar, honey and basil to the pan; cook and stir for 1 minute. Return chicken to the pan; heat through, turning to coat with glaze. Yield: 2 servings.

"I thought this had wonderful flavor. I put the chicken over rice and poured some of the sauce over the chicken. It was fabulous!"

"This recipe was disappointing. I expected it to have a lot of flavor and it was actually kind of bland."

"I made 4 servings easily just by doubling the glaze ingredients. My husband liked it so much he had seconds for dinner and took the leftovers for lunch the next day. Already marked as one of my favorite recipes. This chicken would also be great in a salad with candied pecans."

"Unbelievably easy and quick! My 18month old daughter ate a piece and a half (!!), and my husband and I had seconds! If you have a Tastefully Simple rep near you, buy the Balsamic & Basil dipping oil - i sauteed my chicken in this instead of the canola oil - YUM YUM YUM!!! The seasonings were minimal but perfect - i threw on some crushed red pepper for a little extra kick."
