Super Easy, Super Fast, and Super Yummy Glazed Chicken with Broccoli

I made this for dinner tonight, and immediately knew I had to share.  This was a cinch to make, and came out delicious!  My toddler ate all of the broccoli on her plate, and asked for seconds!

Serves 3
Ready in 20 min

3 chicken breast cutlets
1 Tbls, plus more for the pan-olive oil
1 Tbls honey
1 Tbls spicy brown mustard
1 Tbls brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
two heads of broccoli crowns cut into bite size pieces

Heat a large skillet over med heat.  Meanwhile, wash and dry chicken.  Using a meat tenderizer, flatten the cutlets.  Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Add olive oil to the hot pan.  Add the chicken, and brown for about 3 minutes.  Turn chicken over, and brown second side.  Lower heat to low, and cook chicken an additional 3 minutes per side.

While chicken is cooking, whisk together the olive oil, honey, mustard, sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

During the last minute or two of cooking, brush chicken with glaze.

Remove chicken from pan, and keep warm.

Add the broccoli to the same pan, and cover.  Turn the heat up slightly to med-low.  Cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
