  • 2 chicken breasts
  • half a lemon



    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • 1 tbsp honey



    Honey is made by bees from the nectar they collect from flowers. Viscous and fragrant, it's…

  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce


  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.

Really enjoyed this one, so simple yet it really delivers on flavour! I didn't have any chicken so I used duck and I subbed in orange juice & zest instead of lemon and some red wine vinegar instead of the soy sauce.Family love it and will definitely do this one again!

I made this for hubby, myself and 2 kids this evening. I doubled the ingredients and added some Chinese seasoning to the honey, soy sauce and lemon juice. I also made gravy with some flour, water, chicken stock cubes and the juices from the chicken after and served with mixed veg, roast potatoes and Yorkshire puds and we all really enjoyed it. Definitely going to be making it again.

excellent! I dusted my skinless chicken breasts with flour. Next time I'll use double the quantity of sauce.

First time I've cooked this and wasn't convinced it was going to be as moist and tasty, but boy I was wrong! Everyone loved it! It was so nice. Added more honey and stirred in some corn flour to thicken the sauce.

Just made this it was really nice but I would use more chicken and double the amount of sauce. Very simple to make would love it to look like the picture.

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!!!
