Pan Seared Honey Chicken

Here's What You Need

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or more)
  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 c brussel sprounds (optional to serve with chicken)

Here's What You Do

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.

  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and add to pan, presentation side down. (This would be the skin side if the chicken breast had skin).

  3. Cook on first side for approximately nine minutes, or until edges of chicken are beginning to turn white up the sides.

  4. Gently flip the chicken breasts. They should release easily from the pan, and the presentation side should be a nice golden brown.

  5. Cook on the second side for approximately 6 more minutes or until thermometer inserted reads 160F. Alternatively, you can pierce the chicken to make sure the juice is clear.

  6. Drizzle honey over the chicken breasts and allow to cook for one to two more minutes.

  7. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

  8. Enjoy!
