Easy Honey Balsamic Chicken

AvatarPosted by

To me, Honey and Balsamic goes together as well as Tomato and Basil. And you know me, I love me an easy to prepare meal, so this Easy Honey Balsamic Chicken recipe is perfect for when I’m feeling lazy but want a yummy flavor combo.

A lot of folks like to prepare their honey balsamic in the oven. You can totally do that. In fact, I have a Balsamic Baked Chicken recipe you can use, or you can use this recipe, and then just pop it in the oven too.

For this recipe though, I actually prefer to use my cast iron! I’ve been using it a lot lately, and it’s easy to use and gives it a perfect sexy char on the chicken breast. Don’t be afraid of them – learn more about cast irons here.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast, halved
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried paprika
  • Salt and pepper, as desired

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper.

Add chicken and coat with mixture.

Let it marinate for 30 minutes, and then drain.

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium high heat in a cast iron or non stick skillet.

When the pan is hot, add chicken and let it cook for about 5 minutes.

Flip the chicken over and cook another 5 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.

Remove from heat, and serve!
