Quick Pan Glazed Chicken

Portions:
4

Serving Size:
1 chicken breast

    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil

Preparation

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with pepper.
  2. Sauté chicken for 5 minutes on each side, until brown.
  3. Add balsamic vinegar and sauté for one minute, flipping chicken over to coat.

  5. Remove to a plate and spoon pan sauce over chicken.

Helpful hints

  • Be creative and season chicken with herbs or low sodium seasoning blends of your own choice. Garlic and onion powder go well with the black pepper.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet, decrease the portion to 1/2 chicken breast or substitute smaller boneless chicken thighs for the breast meat.
