Ardavids Honey Glazed Chicken Recipe

One of our RecipeTips.com Community members, “ardavids,” submitted a terrific chicken recipe that I highly recommend. She calls it, “Honey Glazed Chicken,” which is a pan-fried dish featuring a tasty, easy-to-make sauce using the pan drippings. (I’m a sucker for pan sauces.) The chicken (she used skinless chicken breasts) is rubbed with salt, pepper, and dried sage; then it’s cooked in olive oil, butter, and minced garlic. After the chicken has cooked 10 to 15 minutes on both sides, a mixture of honey and balsamic vinegar is added; then the chicken is cooked until done. The chicken is removed from the pan and kept warm while the sauce is prepared. The pan is deglazed with vodka and the sauce is allowed to reduce; then it’s poured over the chicken prior to serving. Yum!

The only change I made to the recipe is that I multiplied it by four (for four people), because the recipe was for only one serving. Oh, and I may have been off on the amount of vodka I used to deglaze the pan. When I was pouring the vodka into the pan (directly from the bottle—I should have known better), my hand must have went into a weird spasm or something, because more came out of the bottle than the recipe called for. Okay…maybe I didn’t have a spasm, but I’m sure the extra vodka didn’t hurt anything. And, for all of you who are apprehensive about using booze in your cooking, remember, when adding hard liquor or wine to a sauce, the alcohol burns off (if the pan is still on the burner) leaving only the wonderful taste behind. Anyway, I want to thank “ardavids” for her great recipe, because I thoroughly enjoyed it and I know you will too!

I used vodka because I didn't want the high fruity notes of wine. But I'm sure any alcohol would work just as well. I'm glad it went over so well!

I tried this chicken recipe on the 4th of July and everyone loved it! I didn’t have any vodka, so I used a little white wine…still delicious. I’m interested to find out what the vodka would do to the flavor, so next time I’ll make sure to have some on hand. Thanks!

Carrot Cake In the Slow Cooker


Can you believe it? A delicious, moist carrot cake made in the slow cooker! Maybe that’s not such a surprise to many of you, but for me, a slow cooker seems a most unlikely appliance to use for baking.

Grilled Italian Chicken and Vegetable Soup


The other day, I was browsing through recipes on RecipeTips.com trying to decide what to make with my abundance of garden vegetables.

The Subject is Tomatoes


  Some of us here in the Midwest have a common problem this time of year: We've got tomatoes coming out of our ears! It seems as though everyone with at least one square foot of open land or a flower pot on the back step has a tomato plant.

Herb Grilled Chicken


  Yes, another chicken recipe; and again, it's cooked on the grill. I know it might seem repetitious to write about another chicken recipe, but this time of year, I rarely get tired of trying different grilled chicken dishes.

Carrot Cake In the Slow Cooker


I think it would be better to use a slow cooker liner bag rather than parchment paper because it would be easier to form it around the slow cooker.

Carrot Cake In the Slow Cooker


I wonder if this could be made using parchment paper to easily pull out the carrot cake when finished.

The Subject is Tomatoes


G would be my first choice but since I don't think that is going to happen I am going with F also. I have too many tomatoes to eat and give away so all the tomato information you have available is great.
