Honey and Paprika Chicken Salad

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.

Serves 2


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.

Coriander optional


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.
