Week 21 - Sweet and Spicy Chicken

The Recipe
450g chicken breast
1tsp chili (more if you like heat)
1-2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Salt Olive oil
2-3 tbsp honey

In a small bowl, mix together the garlic and chili with just enough oil to make a sort of paste. Add a pinch of salt.

Heat some oil in a pan over high heat. Cut the chicken breast in halves, and spread some of the garlic-chili mix over each breast. Put them in the pan, coated side down and cook for a couple of minutes until just brown. Turn over and brown the other side. Add the honey to the top of the chicken breasts and let it melt and coat the sides. Keep the heat on high - we want the honey to caramelize! Use a spoon to spoon the melted honey over the chicken and turn frequently until nice and golden on all sides, and cooked through.

Serve with baked potatoes and some greens.

The Verdict
I keep forgetting from time to time how much I like this dish! It's easy to make, and tastes SO good! I love the chili-honey mix, and being coated in honey all the time keeps the chicken from getting dry. Next time I think I'll add a bit more chili (especially if I'm making this for people who likes heat) - it could do with a bit more of a kick.
