Zesty Lemon Chicken

December has finally arrived which means I can finally embrace the festive feeling and enjoy the Christmas season. Yesterday, I got the day off to a great start by decorating the house with Shaud, in all it's Christmas glory. This morings recipe is another really quick and tasty dish for evenings when you don't have all the time in the world. Another very successful experiment, this Zesty Lemon Chicken, is really tender and moist because of being cooked in the lemon juice. I served this with my Cheesy Potato Bake.

Zesty Lemon Chicken

Serves 2

2 chicken breasts
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
4 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of thyme
2 tablespoons of honey
40g butter

1. Place chicken breasts in an oven proof dish. Juice and zest a lemon.
2. Chop the garlic up finely and pat onto the chicken breast along with the lemon zest.
3. Place the butter pieces over the lemon breast as shown and sprinkle with the thyme.
4. In a jug mix the honey and lemon juice together and pour into the dish. Cover the dish with tin 
    foil and cook at 190C for 20minutes. Then remove the tin foil and cook for a further 10 

E-D's Notes
- I suggest in the ingredients the juice of 1 lemon, but if you want extra sauce for your chicken, 
  feel free to use more.
- I buy my chicken from the butchers as the chicken breasts are better quality, can be 
  guaranteed Irish if you ask, so you know where they came from.
