Honey-Balsamic Chicken

The cooking message board that I frequent (and love) on The Nest had a recipe swap using the theme of chicken because who can't use more chicken recipes?  For me, the beauty of this recipe is the simplicity of it.  There are only a handful of ingredients but the combination of flavors packs a powerful punch.  The balsamic and honey glaze is truly delicious with the tart vinegar and sweet honey.  The combination made me wonder why I hadn't thought of this myself!

Honey-Balsamic Chicken
adapted from Mrs.W1219, also found on

1 tbsp. olive oil
Pinch dried thyme
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. honey

1.  Season the chicken with the pinch of thyme, Kosher salt, and black pepper on both sides.  Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
2.  Add chicken to preheated pan and cook 7-8 minutes per side, until chicken is cooked through.  Transfer to a plate to keep warm
3.  Reduce heat to medium-low and add vinegar and honey to pan.  Stir constantly for one minute, until glaze thickens and comes together.  Pour glaze over chicken and serve.
