- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup Lal’s Bore White Honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- Sesame seeds and chopped green onions, for garnish
- Season and Cook Chicken: Begin your honey chicken recipe by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until golden and fully cooked, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
- Make the Honey Sauce: In the same skillet, lower the heat to medium. Add chicken broth, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, Bore White Honey, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Stir to combine and dissolve the honey, simmering for a few minutes to blend the flavors.
- Thicken with Cornstarch: Mix cornstarch with water to create a slurry. Stir it into the skillet, and cook until the sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
- Return Chicken to Skillet: Add the chicken back to the skillet, coating it thoroughly with the sauce. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to ensure it’s warmed through.
- Garnish and Serve: Place the chicken on a serving dish, garnishing with sesame seeds and green onions.
