Sweet Chilli Grilled Chicken Ingredients:

  • 3-4 tbsp chili sauce, depending on how hot you like it (we used Amoy)
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 boneless chicken breast fillets with skin on
  • 2 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges, to serve, optional

Sweet Chilli Grilled Chicken Cooking Instructions:

  • To make the glaze, preheat the grill to high. Mix together the chili sauce, honey and oil in a large bowl.

  • Using a sharp knife make 3-4 slits across the skin side of each chicken breast.

  • Season with salt and pepper then lift the skin on each breast and tuck under the crushed garlic.

  • Now dip the underside of each chicken breast in the glaze until evenly coated.

  • Reserve the rest of the glaze for later.

  • To cook the chicken, put the chicken on the grill pan, glazed side up, and grill for 8 minutes until golden and sticky.

  • Turn the chicken breasts over, brush with the remaining glaze, then cook for another 6-8 minutes until the chicken is firm and cooked through.

  • Serve straight away with wedges of lime for squeezing over, if liked.
