Honey garlic balsamic chicken

Sometimes we get in food ruts. We fall back on the same old meals that we know we like and they're quick and easy to make. And that works. But sometimes I get bored and want to try something new. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't.

This honey garlic balsamic chicken from Baked Bree is awesome. And will probably get added to our "same old meals." It took 30 minutes from start to finish (and my chicken was still majorly frozen).

What you need:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons honey (I LOVE Austin's Good Flow honey. Eat it with a spoon).
1 tablespoon lemon juice (I didn't have this and left it out, and it was fine).

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in butter and olive oil. Once the butter has melted, add chicken breasts to the pan. Sprinkle them with a lil' salt n' peppa. Cook until there's no pink left inside - took me about 10 minutes. Remove the chicken to a plate.

In the same skillet, add in the garlic, vinegar, broth, honey and lemon juice. Raise the heat a little and cook for 5-7 minutes until the mixture thickens.

Slice up the chicken and pour the pan sauce over it. We served ours with garlic rice pilaf and it was delish. Enjoy.
