  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast about 3 large
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced


  • In a small bowl, make the sauce by whisking together honey, chicken broth, vinegar, red pepper flakes and soy sauce. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Lightly pound chicken breasts to make them an even thickness.
  • Mix salt, pepper and garlic powder together in a small bowl, then sprinkle on both sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Arrange chicken in the skillet in an even layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden and cooked through, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
  • Make a little room in the center of the pan and add a teaspoon of olive oil and the garlic. Cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Pour in the sauce and swirl around the pan. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook for 1 minute or until thickened. Turn the chicken to coat with the sauce.
  • Serve immediately, with drizzled sauce. Garnish with sliced green onions or fresh minced parsley.
