The Wonderful Honey Garlic Chicken Breast (Ready in 12 Minute)

This Honey Garlic Chicken is an epic 12 minute dinner with a 5 INGREDIENT SAUCE made using pantry staples. A juicy seared chicken breast with the most incredible Honey Garlic Sauce, this is a brilliant back pocket quick dinner for busy nights to add to your Chicken Breast recipes collection!


Ingredients:


  • 500 g / 1 lb chicken breast , boneless and skinless (2 pieces)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup / 60g flour (Note 1)
  • 50 g / 3.5 tbsp 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 light soy sauce (or all purpose, Note 2)
  • 1/3 cup / 90g honey (or maple syrup)


Instructions:


  1. Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create 4 steaks in total. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Coat chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  3. Melt most of the butter in a large skillet over high heat - hold back about 1 tsp for later.
  4. Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until golden.
  5. Turn and cook the other side for 1 minute.
  6. Turn heat down slightly to medium high.
  7. Make a bit of room in the pan and add garlic and top with remaining dab of butter. Stir garlic briefly once butter melts.
  8. Add vinegar, soy sauce and honey. Stir / shake pan to combine. Bring sauce to simmer, then simmer for 1 minute or until slightly thickened.
  9. Turn chicken to coat in sauce. If the sauce gets too thick, add a touch of water and stir.
  10. Remove from stove immediately. Place chicken on plates and drizzle over remaining sauce.


NOTES:
1. Make this gluten free by using cornflour / cornstarch instead. It won't brown quite as evenly but once covered in sauce, you won't know the difference.
2. Light or all purpose soy sauce is suitable for this recipe. I don't recommend using Dark Soy Sauce (flavour will dominate).
3. Nutrition per serving, assuming you scrape every drop of Sauce from the pan, and why wouldn't you? 🙂
