Honey Lemon Chicken

Honey Lemon Chicken

It’s lunchtime somewhere, so I thought I’d post my quick and simple Honey Lemon Chicken recipe.

I come across a recipe on the Food and Wine website, and decided to add to/alter it.

Overall, this recipe took 25 minutes to make.

Ingredients you’ll need

🌟 Two chicken breasts

🌟 1/4 cup and 1 teaspoon of honey

🌟 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

🌟 2 tablespoons soy sauce

🌟 A dash of salt

🌟 Teaspoon of garlic powder

🌟 Teaspoon of onion powder

🌟 Fresh Rosemary sprigs

🌟 Tablespoon of Baj’s Blazin’ Hot Sauce – Mama’s Mango

How to make Honey Lemon Chicken

Start by washing the chicken.

Then, transfer the chicken into a medium or large bowl, before adding the fresh rosemary sprigs, honey, mango sauce, lemon juice, soy sauce and dry ingredients (garlic and onion powders, plus the dash of salt).

Once done, pierce the chicken all over for extra succulence (I used a standard cutlery knife) and to soak up the marinade.

At this stage, you could either set them aside, or start grilling straight away.

When you’re ready to cook, pop the pan on (unless you’re planning to grill them on a barbecue), pour a bit of oil in the pan and heat it up before adding the chicken.

Then, pop the chicken in, followed by the marinade – don’t let any of the good stuff go to waste!

Once done, reduce the heat from high to medium, and leave the chicken to cook in its juices for 10 minutes.

10 minutes later, flip the meat over and leave them for another 10.

Now, reduce the heat to low, and pop the lid on – this is to preserve the flavour, and vaporise the marinade. 5 minutes on each side should do the trick.

By now, you’ll be ready to plate up! I served it with salad leaves, beetroot and jalapeños, but you can choose to serve it with whatever you’d like.

If you want go all out and make a full two course meal of it, you could follow up with an Oykos Greek-style yogurt.

If you’ve made it this far, thank you! I’d love to hear your thoughts! Drop me a comment below, and let me know if you try this or any other recipe ideas you have for me.

Dairy Free Coconut Yogurt – Oykos Stracciatella


I’d like to introduce you to my new favourite dessert, Oykos Stracciatella, a coconut-based Greek style dairy free yogurt with vegan chocolate shavings.

I’ve had Oykos yogurts in the past and they weren’t anything to write home about, but this one in particular was blog worthy.

I was quite recently told to cut out dairy, so went in search of an alternative that wouldn’t make me miss the moo… Enter Oykos’ Stracciatella!

Although this yogurt is quite thick, its flavour was a soft pallete cleanser. A huge plus for me was not feeling bloated afterwards.

The chocolate shavings really worked to balance out the flavour of the coconut yogurt, giving the texture some chunk. Could I tell that they were vegan? Yep, I could.

What I realised after having a bowl of this stuff was: it doesn’t take a lot to make me happy… Give me a bowl of dairy free coconut yogurt, grate some chocolate on top and I’m pretty much in heaven.

If you want to try one, add it to your Ocado order.
