Servings: 4


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar or white vinegar
  • 4 tbsp (divided) unsalted butter or olive oil
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • salt & pepper


  • 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.
