  • 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.

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!!!

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.
