Asian Honey Chicken Breast

Sweet moist tender chicken that is smothered in honey infused sweetness. Healthy, easy to make Asian Honey Chicken Breast is a quick meal for a busy day. These breasts are covered with amazing flavors, they are sweet, tangy, garlicky with a mouthwatering finish. I was inspired to refine this recipe because we live about 3 hours from the closest good Chinese restaurant. I do not have to pay restaurant prices for an easy to make at home meal for half the cost. May family loves this dish and I am sure yours will too.

Clean and slice the chicken in half – lengthwise (4 filets). Optional: Use a meat pounder to tenderize the each chicken to an even ⅓” thick.

Season both sides of the breasts with salt & pepper. Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Coat both sides of the chicken with flour.

Then gently shake off the excess.

Heat the pan up to medium-high. Add 2 tbsp butter (wait until it melts). Add chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per-side or until lightly golden brown. Depending on the size of the pan, you may need to do this is 2 batches. Remove breast and set aside. 

Add butter and wait for 30 seconds. Add garlic, soy sauce, honey, vinegar and mix.

Return chicken to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by about half.

Flip the chicken every minute or so to get a good coat of sauce.

Serve with rice, noodles or salad.
