Honey Lemon Basil Chicken

24 Sep

My husband wanted chicken tonight, and since I had basil I needed to use tonight, I thought about using it with some lemon.  Then, I came across a honey, lemon, and basil mixture that sounded really good.  And it was!  It got rave reviews from both girls, and I really enjoyed it too.  I served it with garlic green beans.

Honey Lemon Basil Chicken

What you need:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons honey
Juice of 2 lemons
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, minced

How to make it:

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook chicken in the oil for a few minutes on each side to brown.

Meanwhile, mix together the chicken broth, honey, lemon juice, garlic, and basil.

After chicken has browned, pour in the liquid mixture.  Reduce heat to medium-low and cover.  Cook for 20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and has reached an internal temperature of 180 F.  Remove the lid, and continue to cook the chicken until the liquid reduces to a glaze.  Turn and brush each side of chicken with the glaze.  Remove from heat, and serve.
