Method

  1. Put 2 chicken breasts, skin side up in a small baking dish and season.
  2. Squeeze the lemon into a bowl and stir in the honey and soy sauce. Spoon the mixture over the chicken, then tuck the squeezed-out half of lemon between the pieces (this will moisten and add flavour to the chicken).
  3. Roast the chicken breasts in a baking dish, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in a preheated oven (190C/gas 5/fan oven 170C). Cook until done and richly glazed, basting with the juices at least twice. To check if they are done, prod the chicken with your finger - if it's still a bit soft, give it a bit longer.
  4. Serve with salad and potatoes roasted with herbs and garlic.

Forgot to mention after reading other comments put the juice (honey any soy sauce) into a pan added a few chicken granules to thicken . Worked at treat

Very nice .if you use the chicken with skin I found this takes on more of the flavour as with the pork . Will cook again quick and easy would be ideal for BBQ but would not cook for dinner party

Am trying this recipe for the first time today . Will also be using the sauce mix on a piece of pork will let you know! But after reading the comments re the chicken am looking forward to the meal .

Tried this recipe tonight, but used skinless chicken fillets instead. Thought the flavor was really nice but found the sauce to be quite runny following the recipe.Will make again for sure, but next time will try adding a little flour to thicken up a little so it sticks to the chicken. Had mine with some rice and peas, pretty good!!!

Made this for dinner tonight and was pleasantly surprised at how moist and flavoursome the chicken was. Used skinless breasts so sprinkled a little flour as suggested by another poster. Doubled the quantities for the sauce as did veggies too - would def double again anyway as only a dribble left for a jus.
Cooked with carrot and swede sticks which did not cook! Temperature too low I think. Served with red cabbage and polenta.

Just made this for the first time tonight, really tasted nice. Coated skinless chicken breasts in a dusting of cornflour. This seemed to help keep the moisture in, also covered for first 15minutes. Served with rosemary and garlic oven roasted potato wedges, broccoli.

I've made this twice now and the whole family enjoys it, however my end result does not look like the picture! My sauce is thinner, do I need more honey or is it because I use skinless fillets? I was hoping for a stickier glaze. Tastes lovely though!!

I've made this twice now and doing it again tonight.It is so easy and so delicious!! I cover the dish with foil for about 15 mins then take it off and baste the chicken adding more honey on the top of the chicken. A very very good recipe so thank you very much!!!

A newbie at cooking, so tried this as an experiment, was very nice, but altered quantities to suit myself

Thanks for this

I only use chicken without skin, so by wrapping the chicken do they mean in bacon or something ?

This dish sounds sooo easy. I only have skinless chicken breasts but will season them with a little flour so hopefully the sauce thickens and sticks too.

I shall also add the garlic, rosemary and onion. Not really sure whether to accompany the dish with rice or creamed potatoes with peas and sweetcorn.

Will let you know the outcome.

Very easy to make. I roasted the chicken on a bed of rosemary, thyme and chopped garlic and served with herby roast potatoes. The sauce is totally moreish.

I 'spatch-cocked' a whole chicken and laid flat in roasting tray. Very tasty!

this tasted great and went down well with my guests but i think i made the mixture too liquid. or maybe it just doesn't stick as well to skinless chicken.
will make again

Made this as a quick Sunday evening meal - my boys and husband loved it. A really useful recipe - will be using it again.

Simple but tasty. I used boned chicken thighs but left the skin on. The sauce was quite thin, I thought the honey would have made it stickier, but the taste was lovely.
