What a week! Its friday already! Wow! It’s like I blinked and Friday kicked the rest of the days away.  Weekend is here and something really exciting is coming up here! Keep your eyes wide open! 

Today I used honey to cook a main meal and I was pretty stunned at the flavour of honey on chicken. Like super STUNNED! I have always been seeing recipes using honey to add that sweetish flavour to meats but I had never had the guts to try it for myself. Today I actually picked up my guts, sucked it in and tried it! Results? Honey-mazing! 

 

Let me get straight to it. 

I had one chicken breast left over from two nights ago so I grabbed that quickly and started.

 

Ingredients:

1 or 2 chicken breasts

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon lemon juice

half tsps salt

1 tablespoon levelled chilli powder

Directions

 

  1. Pour into a small bowl: honey, lemon juice, chilli and salt. Mix well
  2. Make delicate slits on the chicken breasts 
  3. Pour spice mix onto the chicken making sure you stuff some into the slits you made earlier. Very key. 🔑 
  4. Pre-heat oven to gas mark 2-3
  5. Oil up grill to prevent chicken from sticking to the metal and gently lay it on. 
  6. Check on chicken in 20 minutes and turn to the other side.
  7. To check if it’s done, give it a bit of prod with your finger and if its soft then its not done. When it’s hard in the next 10 minutes then it’s ready!

Perfectly delicious! I surprised myself for eating one whole breast by myself. 😊 It went perfectly with sautéed potatoes and a side of tomato sauce. I have to try this again. Soon. Very soon.
