  • Serves 2
Chicken pieces marinated in honey, soy, chilli & lemon with lambs lettuce and rocket salad


  • 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


  • STEP 1
    Finely dice the onion and mix with the oil and the other marinade ingredients
  • STEP 2
    Cut the chicken breasts into bite size chunks
  • STEP 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)
  • STEP 4
    assemble the salad on 2 plates, a little of each bag
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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
  • STEP 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
