Today’s recipe is a similar principle to the lemon pepper chicken that I shared a while ago. But this time the zingy zesty flavour is courtesy of lime juice, which is perfectly complimented with the sweet pang of honey and warming tones of ginger.

It’s a delicious sensation, and yet another one that is ideal for a midweek meal because it is so easy to put together…

ingredients
  • Zest and juice of one lime
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or clear honey
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 450g sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oliver oil
  • Sugar snap peas to serve

method

Mix half the lime zest and all the juice with the syrup or honey and grated ginger. Slash each chicken breast 3 – 4 times, then coat with the marinade. Set aside for 10 mins. Heat oven to 200c.

Cook potatoes in salted boiling water for 10 – 12 mins, until tender. Drain and mash, adding the rest of the lime zest and seasoning.

Cook chicken breasts in marinade for around 30 – 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Serve with the mash and peas (I snuck some spinach in there too…).
