  1. Prep the Chicken:
    • Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Lightly dredge them in all-purpose flour, shaking off any excess.
  2. Cook the Chicken:
    • In a large skillet, melt 40g of butter over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Make the Sauce:
    • In the same skillet, add the remaining 20g of butter. Sauté the minced garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the light soy sauce, vinegar, and honey. Cook the sauce for a couple of minutes until slightly thickened.
  4. Combine Chicken and Sauce:
    • Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning the honey garlic sauce over the breasts to coat them thoroughly. Cook for an additional minute to ensure the chicken is well coated and the flavors meld together.
  5. Garnish and Serve:
    • Sprinkle chopped spring onion over the chicken for a fresh burst of flavor. Serve hot, ensuring each plate gets a generous drizzle of the honey garlic sauce.

This Honey Garlic Chicken recipe is not just quick and easy; it’s a delightful way to enjoy a gourmet-tasting dinner without spending hours in the kitchen.
