    UnknownChef86's Note:

    Delicious chicken dish for a nice, simple, light meal. Note:This is one of the recipes I adopted in the Great 'Zaar Orphan Adoption of 2005. I hope you enjoy it. Note: If desired, you can substitute approximately 12-16 chicken breast tenders (tenderloins) in lieu of the whole chicken breasts.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      On a hard surface with meat mallet, lightly pound chicken to 1/4-inch. To minimize the mess, place the breasts/tenders in a zipper-lock bag (unsealed) before pounding (if doing so, ONLY use a flat-surface mallet -- not one with ridges).
    2. 2
      Sprinkle lemon-pepper seasoning evenly on both sides of chicken. Press to adhere.
    3. 3
      In a large frying pan, pour oil and heat to medium temperature.
    4. 4
      Add chicken breasts and cook, turning once, about 7 minutes or until fork can be inserted in chicken with ease. If substituting tenders, cook approximately 2-3 minutes per side, or until done.
    5. 5
      Remove chicken to warm serving platter (keep warm). In medium bowl, mix together vinegar, broth and garlic; add to frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat (scraping up brown meat bits) about 2-4 minutes or until mixture is reduced and syrupy.
    6. 6
      Add butter; stir to melt.
    7. 7
      Place chicken on serving dish and spoon sauce over chicken.
    8. 8
      Garnish with parsley sprigs and cherry tomatoes.

      Incredibly easy and absolutely delicious! I was out of lemon-pepper, so substituted fresh lime juice and fresh ground pepper; amazingly, I was also out of chicken broth, so used apple juice and a splash of red wine as the mixture was reducing. I will definitely make this one again... and probably double the sauce next time!

      Very easy and quick to make. Was a little unsure when we started out how it was going to be! But man o man, it was GOOD! Many compliments to the chef! Seeing that I was the chef, I was happy! CAUTION: Children do NOT like the smell of cooked balsamic vinegar. It really stinks the house up! I may have scarred my 3 boys for life! BUT it was worth it! Great dish!!

      I reduced the recipe for 2 breasts and halved the sauce - not needed as my husband practically licked the sauce out of the pan. Next time I'll just keep the sauce amount the same, regardless of chicken qty. Very good. Served w/hot biscuits and acorn squash.
