Honey Garlic Chicken

Ingredients                                           Makes: 2 chicken breasts
2 Tbsps unsalted butter
2 chicken breasts, fresh or thawed
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
pinch of sea salt
pinch of black pepper
2 cloves garlic, diced fine
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp honey, liquid ~or~ maple syrup

Prepare chicken. Rinse chicken under clean water and then pat dry with paper towels. Cut the breasts in half horizontally to create four steaks in total. Lightly sprinkle each side of the chicken with sea salt and pepper.
 Place flour in a shallow dish with a pinch of sea salt. Coat the chicken in the flour, shake off excess and transfer to a plate.

Cook chicken. Melt most of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; hold back about 1/2 tablespoon for later. Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the chicken has turned a light golden colour. Then, turn the chicken and cook the other side for 1 minute.

Turn heat down slightly to medium. Make a bit of room in the pan and add the diced garlic and the remaining butter. Stir garlic briefly when the butter melts and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Add ketchup, soy sauce and honey and stir to combine. Bring sauce to a simmer, then simmer for about 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Turn chicken to coat in sauce and cook for 1 minute longer. (If the sauce gets too thick, add a touch of water and stir.)

The chicken should be fully cooked, and coated in a rich honey garlic sauce. Serve chicken with the extra honey garlic sauce drizzled over top. Enjoy.
