Balsamic Glazed Chicken Breasts

This delicious and easy recipe was created by my sister Susan over 4 years ago.  I just decided to try it for dinner recently and it was so great.  My husband and kids all loved it.  The best part is I always have balsamic vinegar and honey on hand so this is a very easy last minute throw together dinner which tastes like you spent all day preparing and cooking.  If you're getting tired of the same ole' chicken recipes then definitely try this one.  It's now in my regular dinner rotation and I'm sure it will be in yours as well!


6 boneless thin sliced chicken breasts
salt to taste
pepper to taste
dried thyme ( I used fresh)
1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 up balsamic vinegar
2 T honey
1-2 T olive oil


Heat a nonstick skillet and add the olive oil. Sprinkle the chicken cutlets with the salt, pepper and thyme and put into the skillet and brown on both sides. Remove chicken from the skillet to a plate. Add the chicken broth and deglaze the pan by stirring and scraping up the brown bit from the bottom of the pan.  Add in the balsamic vinegar and the honey and reduce the liquid by half until a thick syrup forms.  Then add back the chicken cutlets to warm through. Serve over the quinoa, cous cous or rice.


  1. It was amazing! My 1yo ate it & my 3 1/2 yo who goes on hunger strikes every so often ate it too.

  2. Hey sweet lady, I'm loving this recipe! I eat a lot of chicken breast because I watch my weight. Thanks for sharing and for coming over to my place.
    Wishing you a great week.

  3. Couldn't get the thick glaze. Maybe I did not understand those directions. Please, clarify. I'd like to make again

  4. Hi Stephen....Sorry it took so long for this response.....How long did you let the sauce simmer to thicken? It can take a little bit of time.....maybe 10 minutes on medium-low heat...shorter time if you have a gas range as opposed to electric...hope that helps

  5. Why can't I print this recipe?
