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.

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.

Lovely easy chicken dish. I only had light soy sauce, and bottled lemon juice, but it still seemed to work well. I used skinless breasts so basted regularly. I also seared the chicken first for a few minutes in a frying pan, but not sure if that was really needed.
I served with 'Spicy Roast Potatoes', (which are always on here). Will definitely make again, and wouldn't change the recipe, as it was lovely as it was.

Yum yum, I added more soy sauce, sear on the outside to brown and then into the oven with the rest of the sauce. Delicious!

Quick, Easy and very tasty.

I added some carrot (chopped into sticks) in the oven dish with the chicken and they also came out nicely.

Easy to make, tasty and quick to roast. I didnt have chicken with skin but as long as you baste it regularly, it came out fine.
