Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup fat free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons honey
    1 Tablespoon butter
    1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
    4 (5 oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup all purpose flour
    2 Tablespoons finely chopped shallots


1. Combine broth, vinegar, and honey.
2. Melt butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat.
3. While butter melts, sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour, and shake off excess flour.
4. Increase heat to medium-high, heat 2 minutes or until butter turns golden brown. Add chicken to pan, cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add shallots, and sauté 30 seconds. Add the broth mixture, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup(about 3 minutes). Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings(serving size: 1 breast and 2 Tablespoons sauce).

  • This was a big success! As quick and easy as this recipe is, it's packed with flavor. The chicken is moist with a great crispy coating---what's not to like. The reduction sauce really puts it over the top, a nice finish. This one's a keeper. - 6/11/12

  • This is soooo good I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! I served it to 9 people and everyone loved it. I did not have shallots, so substituted minced garlic. - 4/3/11
