Start out by seasoning your chicken breast with salt, pepper, onion powder paprika and a little olive oil.  Let that hang out on the counter, and make your barbecue sauce/vinaigrette.  In a jar(for salad dressing double the recipe ) add honey, balsamic vinegar, barbecue sauce and grated garlic.

Shake up the honey mixture, then heat a grill pan or if you live where you can trust your weather people you could do it outside, however our weather people said we’d get a dusting of snow yesterday and instead we got 6 inches! Yeah that’s how we roll around here!


Grill your chicken on one side for 4 to 5 minutes, flip and brush on your sauce and grill the other side for 4 to 5 more minutes, remove from the grill when done and place on a plate an brush the other side with the remainder of the barbecue sauce and serve.  If you do a salad I strongly encourage doubling this sauce recipe and use it as your salad dressing, IT IS AMAZING!!!!!

2 TBSP. Olive Oil
