Recipe video above. An fantastic fast and simple technique to serve up chook breast - seared then simmered within probably essentially the foremost magnificent honey garlic sauce. Don't be deceived by the brief component list! It's definitely value the more step of dusting the chook with flour as it creates a crust for the sauce to cling to. BONUS: See notes for methods to make this with any protein - beef, pork, lamb, prawns/shrimp, tofu!


  • 500g / 1 lb chook breast , boneless and skinless (2 pieces)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup (60g) flour (Note 1)
  • 3.5 tbsp (50g) unsalted butter (or 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil)
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or white or different clean vinegar)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce , pale or all goal (Note 2)
  • 1/3 cup (90g) honey (or maple syrup)


  1. Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create four steaks in total. Sprinkle each one facet with salt and pepper.
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Coat chook in flour and shake off excess.
  3. Melt most of the butter in a big skillet over excessive warmth - cling again about 1 tsp for later.
  4. Place chook in skillet and cook dinner for 2 - 3 minutes till golden. Turn and cook dinner the different facet for 1 minute.
  5. Turn warmth down a little of to medium high.
  6. Make a little bit of room within the pan and upload garlic and higher with closing dab of butter. Stir garlic in short as soon as butter melts.
  7. Add vinegar, soy sauce and honey. Stir / shake pan to combine. Bring sauce to simmer, then simmer for 1 minute or till a little of thickened.
  8. Turn chook to coat in sauce. If the sauce will get too thick, upload a contact of water and stir.
  9. Remove from range immediately. Place chook on plates and drizzle over closing sauce.

 Recipe Notes:
1. Gluten unfastened - use cornflour / cornstarch instead. It will not brown fairly as evenly but as soon as included in sauce, you will not recognize the difference.
2. Soy Sauce - Light or all goal soy sauce is correct for this recipe. I do not suggest utilizing Dark Soy Sauce (flavour will dominate, bottle label will say if it be Dark Soy Sauce).
3. Other proteins: This sauce is higher to make use of for any protein that's correct for searing in a pan. Use chops, steaks, cutlets! Follow the recipe as written, adding dusting the protein with flour. Just modify the cook dinner time - the trick is so as to feature the garlic and different sauce foods earlier than it be definitely cooked through, so the beef finishes cooking simply due to the fact the sauce reduces down right into a syrupy consistency.
Tofu - Use FIRM tofu. Cut "steaks" about 0.75cm / 1/4" thick. Pat dry, spray or rub with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, THEN calmly coat with flour. Coat base of skillet with oil over medium excessive heat, then cook dinner tofu 1 min each one facet till crispy, then take away onto paper towels. Then make the sauce in a small saucepan or skillet utilizing simply 2 tbsp (30g) butter (instead of 3.5 tbsp), following recipe from Step 5. Serve with crispy tofu!
Prawns/shrimp - use big prawns (thaw, drain effectively and pat dry if utilizing frozen). Lightly coat prawns with flour per recipe and sear for 1 minute at the primary side, then simply 30 seconds at the different facet earlier than proceeding with Step 5.
Fish - cook dinner per recipe for chook breast. This sauce is very, very nice with fish! This is a nice sauce for economical fish as it be a stable flavoured sauce. For pricey fish, I suppose it be higher to allow the flavour of the fish come by means of and serve with an dependent sauce like this Lemon Butter Sauce.
4. Nutrition per serving, assuming you scrape each one drop of Sauce from the pan, and why would not you? 🙂
