First, let’s make the base for the sauce. Put the broth and honey in a saucepan and let it boil until it thickens, then dilute as needed.

Add lemon juice to the sauce.

Cut the chicken breast in half lengthwise.

Finely chop the parsley.

Heat a pan with olive oil and fry the chicken breast until golden on both sides (do not salt or pepper the breast beforehand).

Then let the chicken breast bake for about 6 minutes at 180°C.

Meanwhile, heat the sauce.

Turn off the stove under the sauce and stir in the cubes of cold butter.

At the end, mix parsley, ground chili into the sauce and add a little salt.

Remove the chicken breasts from the oven and let them rest for a while. Only now can we lightly add salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the chicken breast, add the fries and add the arugula with a little olive oil.
