Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Lemon wedges
Method
  • Whisk together lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, olive oil and garlic. Season and put in a non-metallic dish. Cut chicken breast fillets into bite-sized pieces and turn in the marinade to coat all the pieces. Tuck bay leaves in the tray. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, soak 8 wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes.

  • Thread the chicken and some bay leaves onto skewers and put a wedge of lemon on the end. Barbecue for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
