Equipment

  • an oven-safe skillet

  • a spatula

  • measuring spoons

  • a meat thermometer

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2

Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme.

3

In a large oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.

4

Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook each side for about 5 minutes until golden brown.

5

Pour the balsamic vinegar and honey over the chicken breasts.

6

Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Notes

The key to a juicy and flavorful baked chicken is in the marination. Marinate the chicken breasts with garlic, herbs, salt, pepper, and a touch of honey for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better! This imparts a depth of flavor that permeates through the chicken. Also, ensure you use a high-quality balsamic vinegar; this greatly affects the overall taste. The honey is to balance the tartness of the vinegar, add or reduce according to your taste.
