  1. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook and stir chicken in the hot oil until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir basil, honey, and balsamic vinegar into chicken and cook for 1 more minute.

There are quite a few recipes like this circulating the web but this one was less complicated, involving less steps. Man, was it good. I seasoned the chicken with some garlic salt as well as the salt and pepper and cooked it in a combination of olive oil and butter for a little extra flavor. One and a half teaspoons each of honey and balsamic vinegar seemed a little skimpy, so I increased that to one tablespoon each and it was just the right amount. I combined the two before I added it to the chicken and it blended in easily. I try to limit my carbs, so I served this with fresh green beans and sliced tomatoes but frankly, this would have been even better with some hot cooked rice.



I'm amazed that such a quick dish could be SO delicious! I couldn't stop eating this, and ended up stuffed! I do have to say that this recipe would make 2 very skimpy servings. (6 ounces of tenderloins as called for in the recipe ended up being 2 tenderloins which in my opinion is enough for one person, not two, so make more!) The package of chicken I bought was enough to triple this recipe so I made the whole package, and I'd say that made a good amount for 3 people. I will make this often! YUM!

It was delicious and easy to make. For a University student, this was affordable and much better than Kraft Dinner and frozen pizza.
