Ingredients

2 breasts chicken boneless, skinless
Marinade
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbs Whole grain Dijon mustard
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 tsp basil dried, crushed
1/4 tsp hot sauce or to taste

Sweet & Sour Chicken

A classic sweet and sour marinade. The chicken can be grilled or baked.

  • Serves 4
  • Easy

Directions

I have made this recipe often but had it carefully written out on an index card, which has been stored in a cupboard. It has bright flavours and is easy to prepare. It requires time to marinate, which makes it a good choice to cook on weekends.

If you buy chicken breasts in bulk, freeze in the marinade. When you’re ready, defrost and cook as normal.
