This is my recipe for a really speedy, easy dinner. It doesn’t have many ingredients and the flavour combination just works; lemon, rosemary and honey.
The soy sauce adds a bit of saltiness to balance the sweetness of the honey and sourness of the lemons. I really like that the chicken becomes so flavourful without a thick or runny sauce, the honey helps it turn into a sort of glaze that coats every piece.
This really is a throw it in the pan and done in 20 minutes dish, ideal for a mid-week dinner!
Pum’s Lovely Lemon, Rosemary & Honey Chicken
- 2 lemons
- 3 tbsp. honey
- 2 tbsp. sesame oil
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 3 chicken breasts
- small handful fresh rosemary
- salt and black pepper
- Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and pan fried with 1 tbsp. sesame oil, salt and pepper.
- When the chicken was fully cooked and no longer pink, added the juice of 2 lemons with the honey and soy.
- Chopped the rosemary very finely and added to the pan with 1 tbsp. sesame oil and cooked for a further 2 mins and that’s it ready!
I like to serve this with brown rice and mixed veg but this chicken also goes soooo lovely with noodles and a little extra soy sauce or served over a green salad.
Tried and tested on a honey-lover this recipe got the thumbs up!!
