Spicy Honey Lemon Fillets

October 15, 2013


KFC chicken is very good chicken.  Yes it is fast food but it tastes fantastic, I can not deny this.  To be able to cook good chicken is a fantastic skill and in my community it is very important.  My family is from the Caribbean and my partner is from West Africa (Ghana), need I say more.  This is a lovely chicken recipe and it tastes unique.  I do not think I have ever tasted anything quite like it.  It’s sweet, hot and spicy, definitely finger licking good.

This recipe was slightly adapted from Ainsley Harriot’s just five ingredients (BBC Books, 2009).

Chicken Lemon Honey Fillets


2 chicken breasts fillets (chopped into bite-size pieces), 2 tbsps clear honey, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp chilli powder, 2 tsps paprika, 3 tsps barbeque sauce, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, salad leaves.


1. Marinate the chicken breasts with the honey, lemon juice, chilli powder, paprika and sauce.
2. After a few hours heat the oil in a saucepan.
3. Fry the chicken until cooked through.
4. When the chicken is cooked serve with salad leaves.

Possible Accompaniments:

1. Mashed potatoes.
2. Fusilli pasta with roasted red pepper sauce.
3. Sweet potato chips with a bacon garnish.
