Time 15 minutes plus marinating
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 tbsp. clear honey
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic gloves, crushed
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp ground black pepper
750g/1lb 10 oz. baby salad potatoes or larger ones halved
Steamed broccoli florets to serve
1 – Slash each chicken breast two or three times with a sharp knife. In a shallow dish – mix the honey, lemon zest and juice, garlic, mustard and black pepper for the marinade.
2 – Add the chicken to the marinade and turn to coat. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes or preferably overnight.
3 – Heat oven to 220c/200c fan/gas 7. Arrange the potatoes and chicken in a single layer in a shallow-sided roasting tin and pour any excess marinade on top. Roast until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked, about 25 – 30 minutes. Serve with the steamed broccoli and any pan juices.
