Balsamic- Glazed Chicken

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min


  • Four 6-ounce (or two larger) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme (or 2 teaspoons fresh)
  • 2 chopped chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into bits


1. Mix thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pat both sides of the chicken breasts with the spice mixture. Heat a large skillet with the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, cook for 2 to 3 minutes (or until browned). Turn and cook the other side until browned. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil.

2. Add water, vinegar, and honey to the skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes or until slightly syrupy and reduced by half. Add the butter and stir until melted. Reduce the heat to medium-low and return the chicken to the pan. Add chopped chives. Cook for about 3 minutes in the glaze, then turn the chicken over and cook for an additional 3 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through). Serve drizzled with glaze.
