Heat the grill to medium. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of cling film and beat them with a rolling pin to an even thickness. Brush them with the butter and place in a wide flameproof dish or pan.
Sprinkle the chicken with the garlic, season lightly, then drizzle with the honey and lemon juice.
Place the chicken under the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes until golden, then spoon the balsamic vinegar over. Turn the breasts over, baste with the pan juices and continue grilling for 5-6 minutes until the chicken juices run clear when the breasts are pierced with a knife.
Serve the chicken breasts, spoon the pan juices over them and garnish with parsley.
I don't have a grill so when I make this recipe, I just put the chicken in a shallow baking dish and throw it in the oven. Also, after beating the chicken, I marinate the breasts for a few hours in the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice for extra flavour. - 01 Mar 2010
