Orange, ginger and honey chicken

This was a sweet and tangy sauce that was made over grilled chicken. It was lovely.

200 mls (1 cup) orange juice, I had to use store bought juice as the oranges in the shop were gross
juice of half a lemon
1 and half tablespoons orange marmalade
1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons honey

2 chicken breasts

salt and pepper to season chicken

1. Season chicken and place in pan or on grill and cook through

2. Once cooked remove chicken or place it to the side and add the other ingredients to the pan, stirring til marmalade is dissolved.

3. Let simmer for a few minutes (if you have removed the chicken now is the time to place it back in)

4. Serve with generous spoonfulls of the sauce.


  1. I've looked at all your recent meals/desserts. You guys eat really well! I can't even imagine making meals and desserts like that all the time. I'd be so full lol!

  2. Ahhh these are so simple to make, the sauce takes no time and the sweets are easy too. I have to make things that are simple I wouldn't have time otherwise :)

  3. Ohhh - yum!! that looks really yummy :)
    And I am with the other Nicole, you guys do eat really well! :)

    Thanks for your comment, it was really sweet and really touched me. Sometimes all it takes is to remember the sweetness of our kids to pull us out of a bad moment!
