  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 lemon, finely sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • No Salt Seasoning and Pepper, to taste

Season the chicken with no salt seasoning and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large frying pan. Cook the chicken over medium to high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove chicken from the pan; keep warm. Add remaining teaspoon of oil. Saute the garlic and lemon slices for 1-2 minutes with the thyme. Add the vinegar to the same pan. Cook over medium high heat until reduced by half. Add the soy sauce and honey; mix well.

Pour in water. Let the liquid bubble and reduce down until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan. Heat through for 1-2 minutes.

Transfer the chicken and sauce to a platter. Garnish with parsley.
