Easy Speedy Sticky Chicken

This is a really versatile recipe that can be served with couscous and other salads as dinner, or in wraps or rolls with salad as lunch. You can marinate the chicken as soon as you get in from work or holiday fun and then  it's super quick to cook the chicken and  make the couscous.  It's one of my 3 daughter's favourite quick fix dinners and also one of mine because it's so versatile and if you serve it as wraps, it makes a little chicken go a long way.

Serves 6 - generously

4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts

juice and zest of 4 oranges

4 cloves garlic, crushed

2 Tblsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp hot sauce or BBQ-style sauce

2 Tblsp honey

Grate the zest from the orange in a non-metallic bowl.  Crush the garlic and then add the orange juice, crushed garlic, honey, Worcestershire sauce and hot or BBQ sauce to the bowl. Mix together until well combined.

Slice each chicken breast into 6 thin strips and marinate in the prepared mixture for 45 minutes. While the chicken is marinating you can prepare the couscous, salads or wraps.

Heat a non-stick pan and cook the chicken, turning frequently, until browned all over and cooked through.

Pour in the remaining marinade and continue to cook, turning the chicken in the sauce until it's dark golden and sticky.

Serve with couscous and salads, or in wraps with salad.
