  • 1 lb chicken breast , boneless and skinless
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3.5 tbsp unsalted butter (or 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil)

  • 1 1/2 tbsp cider vinegar (or white or other clear vinegar)
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce

  1. Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create 4 steaks in total. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.
  2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Coat chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  3. Melt most of the butter in a large skillet over high heat – hold back about 1 tsp for later.
  4. Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until golden.
  5. Turn and cook the other side for 1 minute.
  6. Turn heat down slightly to medium high.
  7. Make a bit of room in the pan and add garlic and top with remaining dab of butter. Stir garlic briefly once butter melts.
  8. Add vinegar, soy sauce and honey. Stir / shake pan to combine. Bring sauce to simmer, then simmer for 1 minute or until slightly thickened.
  9. Turn chicken to coat in sauce. If the sauce gets too thick, add a touch of water and stir.
  10. Remove from stove immediately. Place chicken on plates and drizzle over remaining sauce.
