Honey-Basil Chicken

 Man I love a delicious meal that can be thrown together in minutes....there are just some nights where I want to eat on the early side so that I can truly relax for a few hours before I go to bed.  Since I tend to fall asleep on the couch around nine, this requires me to get in the kitchen soon after I get home from work.

With this knowledge a dear friend of mine gave me this recipe and said it would blow my mind how good (and easy) it was.

As I typically am when people rave about the deliciousness of a recipe I was skeptical but I took the recipe and told her I would give it a try.  With my bank account on the anorexic side I took another look at the recipe and realized I would only need to buy one ingredient, the chicken, as I had the rest at home!

SOLD! I would give it a try.

I decided I would cook som rice and broccoli to go along with my meal, just in case it wasn't all it was cracked up to be but as the rice was cooking, and the chicken was simmering, I started nibbling....just a strip of chicken here and another one there....soon I realized I had eaten a good portion of the chicken without having even moved it to the plate...it was that delicious!

Honey-Basil Chicken
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 package thinly sliced chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh basil

Heat oil in the skillet; salt and pepper both sides of the chicken.  Put the chicken in the skillet for about 5-6 minutes on either side or until done.  
Remove from skillet once done and cut into strips.  Return to pan.
Pour honey, vinegar and basil over the chicken.  
Let cook for another 1 minute.  Serve immediately.
Pin It!
