Sweet Chili Chicken

One of my most memorable meals was one I had in a restaurant in SLC, Utah. Looking back, it really was a simple recipe, but it was new to me and blew my socks off! I have recreated it, and love it.

Chicken breasts (I like to cut them in long strips, so we don't necessarily each eat a whole breast)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup chili sauce. I use the asian kind

Saute chicken breast in olive oil until cooked through. Mix the honey and chili sauce and pour over the chicken. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook until the sauce is reduced to a gravy type consistency. Pour the sauce over the chicken when you serve it. This sounds simple, but it is so good, and I think you could experiment with different kinds of chili sauce.
