A note about serious food allergies
It's possible the only combination of "tart" and "sweet" you're aware of is the kind you scarf down out of a cardboard box at the movies. But there's more to this twosome than mouth-puckering candies. The tartly sweet balsamic mixes with the sweetly sweet honey, with a touch of demi for base, and you've got a sauce that has all the action and adventure of a summer blockbuster, but much less work and not involving someone wearing a cape.

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Customize It Instructions
If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.
Prepare the Ingredients
Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add chicken to hot pan. Cover, and cook undisturbed until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side.
Keeping pan covered cooks chicken faster.
Transfer chicken to a plate and rest, 3 minutes.
While chicken cooks, cook sauce.
Make the Sauce
Place a small pan over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. water, balsamic vinegar, honey, and demi-glace to hot pan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, cook until liquid is reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner and swirl in butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Make Salad and Finish Dish
In a mixing bowl, toss or gently combine arugula, tomatoes, and dressing.
