Recipe video above. An unbelievable speedy and simple solution to serve up fowl breast - seared then simmered within probably one of the foremost impressive honey garlic sauce. Don't be deceived by the brief factor list! It's truly price the more step of dusting the fowl with flour as it creates a crust for the sauce to cling to. BONUS: See notes for find out find out methods to make this with any protein - beef, pork, lamb, prawns/shrimp, tofu!


  • 500g / 1 lb chicken 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 objective (Note 2)
  • 1/3 cup (90g) honey (or maple syrup)


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

 Recipe Notes:

1. Gluten free - use cornflour / cornstarch instead. It will not brown fairly as evenly but as soon as blanketed in sauce, you will not realize the difference.
2. Soy Sauce - Light or all objective soy sauce is properly 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 upper to make use of for any protein that's properly for searing in a pan. Use chops, steaks, cutlets! Follow the recipe as written, adding dusting the protein with flour. Just regulate the cook dinner time - the trick is so as to feature the garlic and different sauce meals earlier than it be truly 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 huge prawns (thaw, drain nicely 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 fowl breast. This sauce is very, very nice with fish! This is a nice sauce for economical fish as it be a sturdy flavoured sauce. For dear fish, I assume it be higher to permit the flavour of the fish come by and serve with an based 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? 🙂
