When you find a fantastic chicken recipe, you must share it with the world.  This honey balsamic chicken recipe is a family favorite, and you can never have enough chicken recipes!  When you’re cooking for health, chicken is the best kind of protein.  I hope your family loves it as much as mine does!


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup parsley leaves
  • Salt and cracked pepper


  • Cut the chicken breasts into three even pieces.
  • Chop the fresh parsley and set aside.
  • In a pan on medium to low heat add olive oil. Brown each side and then finish cooking on very low heat.  Remove from pan and set aside in warm place.
  • To the same pan, add the minced garlic and dried herbs.  Sweat garlic until soft, around 30 seconds on low heat.  If the pan is too dry add a little more olive oil
  • Deglaze with chicken stock.
  • Add the honey, mustard and balsamic vinegar, mix well leave to reduce on high heat.
  • Once sauce has thickened but not too much, return the cooked chicken pieces, turn heat to low and leave to finish cooking in the sauce for approx. 3 to 5 minutes or until the sauce has turned into a nice glaze consistency.  (thicker pieces may need longer)
  • Add chopped parsley, rotate the pan so some of the parsley mixes and it’s ready to serve.
