A quick and easy marinade to liven up chicken but works great on salmon too. I served it with lots of fresh salad packed with lettuce, olives, cucumber and peppers. I make up a dressing with 3 parts oil and 1 part vinegar along with a clove of minced garlic and some salt and cracked black pepper.
Best served in the sunshine with an ice cold glass of your favourite white wine.
2 chicken steaks or breasts
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Clove of garlic – minced
Salt and cracked black pepper to season
Squeeze over the juice of half a lemon while cooking
Mix up your marinade in a large bowl and add your chicken to it to marinate, coating fully. If you have the time to marinate the night before, then all the better otherwise half an hour or so would be fine while you are preparing the salad etc.
Simply add a little olive oil to your griddle / frying pan and cook the chicken until it is fully cooked through. If I’m using chicken breasts rather than steaks I would recommend cutting them in half to reduce cooking time.
Serve with your desired salad and carb of choice.
