About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 500g / 1 lb chicken breast , boneless and skinless (2 pieces)

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 3 1/2 tbsp (50g) 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 soy sauce , light or all purpose

  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)

Preparation

Step 1


Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create 4 steaks in total. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.


Step 2


Place flour in a shallow dish. Coat chicken in flour and shake off excess.


Step 3


Melt most of the butter in a large skillet over high heat – hold back about 1 tsp for later.


Step 4


Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until golden. Turn and cook the other side for 1 minute.


Step 5


Turn heat down slightly to medium high.


Step 6


Make a bit of room in the pan and add garlic and top with remaining dab of butter. Stir garlic briefly once butter melts.


Step 7


Add vinegar, soy sauce and honey. Stir / shake pan to combine. Bring sauce to simmer, then simmer for 1 minute or until slightly thickened.


Step 8


Turn chicken to coat in sauce. If the sauce gets too thick, add a touch of water and stir.


Step 9


Remove from stove immediately. Place chicken on plates and drizzle over remaining sauce.
