This family-friendly chicken breast recipe is sure to please. Serve with polenta or orzo to absorb the balsamic-honey sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine broth, vinegar, and honey.

Step 2

Melt butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat.

Step 3

While butter melts, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour; shake off excess flour.

Step 4

Increase heat to medium-high; heat 2 minutes or until the butter turns golden brown. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add shallots, and sauté 30 seconds. Add the broth mixture, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 3 minutes). Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Chef's Notes

To assure the chicken gets done, use breasts on the small side, about 4 to 5 ounces each.
