Balsamic Garlic Chicken

This recipe was featured in Southern Living's July 2010 issue and is delicious. It's relatively easy to make and still has a lot of flavor without a ton of ingredients.

4 (6 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons of honey

1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper
2. Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; Add chicken and cook 6-7 minutes on each side or until done; Remove chicken and keep warm
3. Add chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and honey to skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring to loosen particles from the bottom of the skillet. Serve chicken with sauce on top.

* An easy side to pair with this is orzo, which is pictured below mixed with fresh pesto
