  • Marinade
  • 1 lemon or lime, juiced
  • 1 red onion, very finely diced
  • 3 table spoons vegetable or olive oil
  • 2 table spoons of sweet soy sauce (ketjap manis or other)
  • 1 table spoon of clear honey
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of sambal manis or 1 red chilli finely chopped and de-seeded if necessary
  • 1 table spoon of ginger syrup or grated fresh ginger (1 inch)
  • Salad
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 100gr bag of (organic) rocket
  • 1 100gr bag of (organic) lambs lettuce
  • 1 100gr bag of (organic) mixed lettuce


    1. Finely dice the onion and mix with the oil and the other marinade ingredients
    2. Cut the chicken breasts into bite size chunks
    3. Add the chicken to the marinade and leave for 30 minutes or longer (can be done the day before with frozen chicken which will then defrost soaking up the marinade)
    4. assemble the salad on 2 plates, a little of each bag
    5. shallow fry the chicken pieces for 10 minutes - no extra oil necessary, or grill the ckicken in an oven dish turning over the pieces midway, until the marinade has thickened. Add a little water to thin if necessary. Enough fluid marinade has to be left as a dressing and the chicken should have a brown glaze.
    6. Leave to cool for 5 minutes, drape the pieces over the salad and finsih off by spooning over the liquids from the pan / oven dish as a dressing
    7. same recipe can be used for chicken wings, part cooked in the oven and finished on the BBQ or to be eaten cold as a snack
