Honey Balsamic Chicken





Everyone loves chicken, it's America's favorite bird to eat. We grill, roast and bake tons of it every year. Sometimes there needs to be a bit of variety in our chicken preparation. This is a great way to do just that. If you have grown bored of plain grilled chicken, this is a fabulous recipe from The Recipe Critic. She has tons of fabulous pictures and recipes galore! 

This is a simplified version of her Grilled Honey Balsamic Chicken. If you are anything like me, marinating ahead of time is an ideal and fancy thing that doesn't ever come to fruition. Instead of marinating this, just brush the tangy sauce on the chicken the same way you would barbeque sauce. 

This grilled chicken comes out juicy, tender and has so much flavor. This is perfect for any week night meal and can be paired with just about anything you like.

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
 2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper the chicken breasts to your liking on both sides. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Sear the chicken on a grill or large skillet over medium heat on both sides for about two minutes.

Once the chicken has a slight sear on it, brush the sauce over the chicken pieces. Continue cooking until the sauce becomes thick and makes a nice crunchy, saucy layer on the outside and the inside of the chicken is cooked through.

Say goodbye to ho hum chicken!
