When the weather warms up a little I can’t wait to have lots of salads. I’m all for a quick and easy dinner that’s low in calories but high on flavour. For me this is the best kind. I marinate the chicken in a little honey, paprika, garlic and a few other delights. If you’re looking for a quick and easy chicken marinade give it a go. Couldn’t be simpler.
2 chicken breasts
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon paprika
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and cracked black pepper to season
1 clove garlic – minced
Half teaspoon onion granules
Teaspoon olive oil
Salad – lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sweetcorn, red onion and edamame beans.
Pre heat oven to 200c / 180c fan
Mix up all of the ingredients for your marinade and coat the chicken breasts. Leave overnight if possible. It will still be delicious if you eat straight away, so don’t worry if you there’s not time.
Make your salad and dress however you wish. I like olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon and salt and cracked black pepper.
Place your chicken in a foil parcel on a baking tray and leave the parcel slightly open at the top. Cook in the middle of the oven for approximately 22 minutes. Once the chicken is fully cooked, slice and serve on top of your delicious, vibrant salad.
