Balsamic Honey Chicken with Apples

This was a quick, healthy and delicious meal
It's perfect for a hectic weeknight and has lots of flavor! 

What You'll Need:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large apple, diced
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch 

What To Do:
Rinse the chicken in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. (Be sure they are completely dry.) If desired, pound chicken to preferred thickness. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning once, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. Remove the chicken from the heat and transfer to a plate. Cover to keep it warm.

Add the garlic and turn the heat down to medium for 2 minutes or until the garlic is soft. Add the apple andand 1/4 cup of the chicken broth and continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apple is soft. In a small bowl, combine the remaining chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, honey and cornstarch. Pour over the apple mixture. Increase the heat to high until it comes to a boil and then immediately lower the heat and simmer, stirring frequently for 4 to 6 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Return the chicken and any juices to the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. taste and adjust the seasoning as desired.

Using a slotted spoon, serve chicken and apples over brown rice.
