About the Recipe


  • 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)


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.
