This is one dish you can be confident with regardless of your culinary skills. It’s great to serve at dinner parties as the chicken is extremely succulent and definitely a crowd pleaser. The succulence of the meat comes from it being steeped in a liquidy marinade that verges on a brine.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125ml apple-cider vinegar
80ml honey
1 lemon, zested and juiced, to give 2 tablespoons juice
1 lime, zested and juiced, to give 1 tablespoon juice
3 garlic cloves, crushed
12 sage leaves, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon thyme leaves
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 litre water
6 200 g free-range chicken breasts, skin on

Method

  1. Combine the ingredients other than the chicken in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts – they should be covered in the liquid. Cover and refrigerate for 2–3 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the chicken breasts from the liquid and place in a baking dish. Cover with a lid or foil and bake for 30–35 minutes until cooked through.
