  • 3 chicken breasts boneless skinless approximately 1½ pounds, pounded to ½-inch thickness
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley fresh , plus more for garnish
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup flour all-purpose
  • 8 tablespoons butter unsalted ,divided
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar apple cider


  • Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and use a sharp knife to make 4-5 cross-hatch cuts, making sure to not cut all the way through the chicken.
  • Drizzle olive oil over both sides of each chicken breast.
  • In a small bowl, combine paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Season the chicken all over with the seasoning mixture, including rubbing it into the grooves.
  • In a wide, deep plate, add the flour. Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, coating all sides. Shake off excess flour.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 6 tablespoons of butter. Add chicken, cross-hatch side up, and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and repeat on the opposite side. Chicken may not be cooked through yet; it will continue cooking in the final step.
  • Remove chicken from pan, and tent it to keep warm.
  • To the skillet, add the remaining butter and garlic, and cook for one minute.
  • Add honey, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar to the skillet and whisk to combine.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan, cross-hatch side up. Allow the mixture to simmer until the sauce is thickened and chicken is cooked through, or about 3-5 minutes. (Chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.) Occasionally baste the chicken with the sauce.
  • Serve, garnished with fresh parsley, with cooked rice and steamed broccoli.
