One Pot Chicken Breasts in Brown Sauce

This was one of the first recipes to go up on the FB page, and it has not disappointed!  We have it every week at our house.One-Pot-Chicken-Breasts-in-Chinese-Brown-Sauce


  • 4 (4-6 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup lite (low sodium) soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch


Flatten the chicken breasts with the bottom of a pan or cup. Pepper chicken breasts on both sides. In a pan over medium heat, brown chicken breasts in olive oil on both sides, for about 3 minutes per side.

Whisk together honey, soy sauce, and 1 cup of the broth and olive oil in a bowl. Add to the pot with the chicken and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until cooked through.

Whisk the cornstarch in the remaining 1/2 cup of broth to form a slurry. Stir the slurry into the skillet. Turn the heat up higher to allow the sauce to boil for about 2 to 3 minutes. Once sauce has thickened, top dish with scallions and serve. Enjoy!
