Easy Peasy Baked Chicken

Home from work and wishing for a quick and wholesome dinner? Here it is.

Ideally, marinade the chicken the night before or that morning, meaning that all you have to do after a long and busy day is put it in the oven!
The chicken goes beautifully with a green pea mash or steamed carrots and a salad. Alternatively, you could slice the fillets after baking and serve on zucchini noodles. 

Ingredients

(serves 2)

  • 500g organic chicken thigh fillets

  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • 3 small cloves garlic, grated
  • A couple of pinches sea salt
  • Chilli flakes to taste

* To warm the honey, dispense the required amount into a small jar. Place jar in a pot with some boiled water until runny enough to brush.

Method

  • Place all of the ingredients except for the honey in a baking dish. Mix around to ensure the chicken is well coated.
  • Place in the fridge to marinade for an hour or so. If time does not permit, skip this step.
