What's for Dinner {16} - Honey Garlic Balsamic Chicken

This is a winner! I couldn't get my sauce to thicken but it was awesome nonetheless.

Honey Garlic Balsamic Chicken adapted from Baked Bree

2 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
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.

Finish by spooning the pan sauce over the top.  We served the chicken with mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli.


We also watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Such a good movie. My favorite line? "Mary Elizabeth, why are you trying to eat Christmas!" I cried like a little girl and went to bed early.
