Wondering what you can cook after a long day at work? Just prepare the marinade, throw in the chicken, and whilst you have a lovely shower, they will be ready to put on the grill.  Would be lovely with a crisp salad.  Smashed potatoes go great too!

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp gluten free sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Chives, snipped

Method


In a medium bowl, mix together orange juice, soy sauce, oil, garlic, curry powder, chilli flakes, sweet chilli sauce, honey, salt & pepper. Slice each breast into two, put in a ziplock freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Toss to evenly coat the chicken. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 180C. Place the chicken breast halves in a baking dish lined with baking paper and brush with the marinade. Put in the oven and cook until chicken is done, occasionally basting the chicken breast with the marinade.

Serve with snipped chives.
