Time 15 minutes plus marinating

Serves 4

You’ll need:

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.
